Workshop in Algorithmic Computer Music (WACM) at UC Santa Cruz
Untitled Document
This summer, for the third year, we'll be offering the Workshop in Algorithmic Computer Music (WACM) at UC Santa Cruz. Student evaluations from the past two years have been uniformly positive and we're excited about doing it again.
One of the things the students benefit most from is limiting the workshop to fifteen students, which allows for a very high student/teacher ratio. But it also means that people applying later in the year may not get in.
So I'm sending you this email to remind you about the workshop and to give you an opportunity to apply before our main publicity goes out. I won't barrage you with details here (a general blurb appears below), but if you're interested you can visit the website, which is at:
... and please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. If you know anyone else who might benefit from the workshop, please feel free to forward this message.
All best,
Dave Cope Workshop in algorithmic computer music to be offered summer 2004
The first Workshop in Algorithmic Computer Music (WACM) will take place from June 25 through July 9, 2004 at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC). Participants will learn the Lisp computer programming language and create their own composition and analysis software. The workshop will be held at UCSC's new Music Center, which features state of the art facilities as well as sweeping vistas of the Monterey Bay. David Cope, Paul Nauert, Peter Elsea, and Soren Goodman will be among those on hand to teach and advise workshop attendees. Participants will take classes on the basic techniques of algorithmic composition and algorithmic music analysis, learning and using the computer programming language Lisp. Participants will create three significant software projects: a Markov-based rules program, a genetic algorithm, and software modeled on the Experiments in Musical Intelligence program. Music analysis software and techniques will also be covered in depth. Many compositional approaches will be discussed in detail including rules-based techniques, data-driven models, genetic algorithms, neural networks, fuzzy logic, mathematical modeling, and sonification. Software programs such as Common Music, Max, Open Music, and so on will also be presented and used.
The workshop offers 66 hours of class instruction and over 120 hours of individual consultation.
Each participant will receive a free class reference manual, class software in source code, and other printed and software tools and guides relevant to the workshop's goals. Access to the world class computer music facilities at UCSC will allow performances and special lectures by invited guests. The workshop includes five daily hours of individual computer time (with an advisor close at hand). Each week will culminate in performances of participant works and presentations of analysis and composition software. By the workshop's end, each participant will have gained facility with Lisp, have written compositional and analytical software programs, and be presented with a CD of their compositions.
Prospective students must have an ability to read music and understand basic music theory as well as have at least a basic facility with computers (text editing, etc.). Students need not be active musicians or programmers. Fee is $1750. Room and board is available on campus if desired. 5 units of credit is available.
