Prisma - Summer 2008 Meeting

I am just back from Montbéliard, France, where I took part in the July 2008 Prisma Meeting.

Prisma meeting 2008

Prisma is an international group of composers and researchers founded in 2001 at the initiative of Jacopo Baboni Schilingi. Prisma stands for "International Pedagogy and Research on Assisted Musical Systems." I joined in 2003 at the invitation of Jacopo Baboni and Hans Tutschku. The group meet regularly to exchange and build musical knowledge.

This time, the schedule looked like this (original untranslated program):

Saturday 07/05

Sunday 07/06

Monday 07/07

  • New tools for sound spatialization (Hans Tutschku)
  • Approaches for controlling the musical form in constraint problems - Models for controlling the pitch structure - Realtime constraint programming (Torsten Anders)
  • Spectral Sound Processing with Max/MSP/Jitter (Jean-François Charles)
       I presented a set of patches designed to teach Phase Vocoder and Freeze techniques.
       Download the Max/MSP/Jitter patches.
  • Practical workshop

Tuesday 07/08

  • Integration and confusion - The use of live electronics in "Einst mit dir" for soprano, clarinet, violin, and electronics (Hans Tutschku)
  • Why you would use Ableton Live for live electronics (Jean-François Charles)
  • Practical workshop

The group addressed many thanks to the Montbeliard Conservatoire of Music and his Director Jacques Clos, who made this meeting possible.
