Mon 30 Nov, Tue 1, Wed 2 Dec

Arnolfini, Bristol, UK


/mode +v noise is an intense 3 day workshop for up to 10 participants,
looking at how to build an Internet chat based music platform.

The workshop will give you the opportunity to create your own software
sound synthesiser and different chat bots that will be used to
manipulate and turn your chat into a music score. To achieve this, we
will use free software such as Python, Supercollider, Puredyne, Emacs
and more!

The workshop is aimed at participants with basic experience in
programming, scripting, or markup languages, even if it's just
(X)HTML/CSS. You do not have to be an experienced programmer, but if
you are, that's good too. As long as you are not afraid to work in a
terminal, you'll be fine! In general, we are looking for people who
have already experienced the "culture shock" of using plain text to
describe a process and want to take this further or discover creative
programming using free software.

The workshop will be adapted to the participants' experience and
profiles, but do not hesitate to contact us for extra details or if
you are not sure you will fit. You will go home with the software and
code you wrote during the workshop, and encouraged to share it and
develop it further!


GOTO10 are a collective of international artists and programmers,
dedicated to Free/Libre/Open Source Software (FLOSS) and digital arts.

Email frances.bossom at arnolfini.org.uk with your applications. Places
will be allocated on the basis of the strength of the case you make to
take part.

DEADLINE: 16 November.
Notification of outcome: 21 November.

At the end of the workshop, everything will be left on site in the
gallery and available online as part of the Craftivism exhibition at
Arnolfini (12 December 2009 - 14 February 2010).
