In this one-day workshop, Keith Fullerton Whitman (US) will discuss the challenges one must face when approaching electronic instrumentation in an orchestral manner.
His Redactions and Generators setups will be on hand, and the choices made while designing and implementing their specific topologies over the course of a decade will be demonstrated. While a familiarity with experimental electronic music and analogue synthesisers will be helpful, the workshop will centre on a broader discussion about how and why to implement chance and improvisational concepts within rigid compositional frameworks, and how to delineate risk and humanistic performance tendencies to simple, algorithmic systems.
Participants are required to have a basic knowledge about analogue synthesis and digital sound production. Applicants are asked to submit a short motivation and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is 8 February 2019. The participation fee is €25.
The workshop takes place in STEIM Amsterdam, Schipluidenlaan 12 from 13:00 to 17:00.
