An Introduction to SuperCollider

SuperCollider is an open-source media programming language that can be used for sound design, generative composition, performance, interactive music applications and more. Its text-oriented nature is unfamiliar to some – so how can you put this powerful tool to use?

This workshop introduces SuperCollider from a number of angles, including sound synthesis, effects processing, machine listening and even a little machine learning. After getting an introduction to the basics of the language, we’ll dive into and various applications, while you follow along and try the examples on your laptop.

No prior knowledge of SuperCollider is required for this workshop, however, you should have some basic computer music or production experience. Please bring your laptop and, to save time, please have SuperCollider already downloaded and installed.
