Workshop »digital composition«
→ Information auf Deutsch
The institutions ACROE – Association pour la Création et la Recherche sur les Outils d’Expression, ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics and Ionian University Korfu tend with the project Ambiant Creativity to create an interdisciplinary, European network and to develop a teaching method of digital composition which may lead to some more orientation.
Damian Marhulets, Jérôme Bertholon and Omer Chatziserif are those three young artists who were chosen by an international jury and who will develop audiovisual and digital forms of expression with the support of all institutions within the next two years. A digital arbitrariness will be replaced paradigmatically by the use of established instruments.
Within the international workshop »digital composition« but also during concerts, lectures and discussions on the topic of »digital creativity and contemporary music« young artists will enter the dialogue with experienced artists at the ZKM | Karlsruhe (Germany).
Invited artists such as Sebastian Berweck (pianist) and Robert Henke (composer, software engineer), who work with different experimental expression forms, will design concerts and will actively engage in the discussions. The focus of all these activities lies in digital compositional techniques as well as in the question of the digital avant-garde: if they exist, where are they now?
Call for applications
Computer based works will emerge from an intensive collaboration between teachers and students by the use of advanced compositional techniques like algorithmic composition, physical modeling and spatialization. The works will be presented with the ZKM_Klangdom.
The workshop is primarily addressed to students of sound design and composition.
Please register and mention your favorite focus (algorithmic composition, physical modeling and spatialization) until February 28th, 2011 to haeckerzkm.de
