SuperCollider has established itself as one of the most powerful environments for audio programming, used by musicians, artists and scientists alike for explorations of sound. Its wide scope, powerful language and optimised sound engine has attracted people from all fields working in areas from composition to machine listening to data sonification.
In this three day workshop, participants will get up and running with the cutting-edge audio synthesis and music programming language SuperCollider. The workshop will be split into three parts: synthesis, generative composition, and system design (such as interfaces and installations).
The workshop is beginner level and participants should bring their own computers with SuperCollider installed.
SuperCollider is cross platform and free, to be downloaded here:

Thor Magnusson is a musician/writer/programmer working in the fields of music and generative art. His PhD from the University of Sussex focused on computer music interfaces from the perspective of semiotics, phenomenology and cognitive science. He is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Art and Media at the University of Brighton and teaches courses on computer music, algorithmic and interactive systems in the Creative Systems MSc course at the University of Sussex and the Sonic Arts course of Middlesex University. Thor is mainly interested in improvisation, live performances, installations and audio software production. He is a co-founder and member of the ixi audio collective. With ixi he has written various musical software and given workshops and talks in key institutions across Europe on the design and creation of digital musical instruments and sound installations.

Thor has given workshops that include SuperCollider for nearly a decade and has been an active user of the environment, for example resulting in his work with the ixiQuarks ( www.ixi-audio.net/content/download/ixiquarks )
