Sonic Pointillism - a hands-on seminar on Granular Synthesis with
SuperCollider (taught by Fredrik Olofsson)

Granular synthesis is a synthesis technique based on the same
principles as sampling. It utilizes tiny fragments of sound to
construct a sound structure consisting of hundreds or thousands of
these sonic particles or "grains".

During this hands-on seminar we will learn how to buld different kinds
of grains and the systems to generate, shape and control groups or
"clouds" of these units in real time. We will also add interactive
control to our granulator programs in order to be able to use them live
as instruments. We will be using the free and open-source programming 
environment SuperCollider. 

The first session will include a lightning-fast introduction to this
synthesis environment.

8, 9 and 10 october 2010 at Hangar, Barcelona.
