[ISEA2000] Workshop: Benjamin Thigpen & Emmenuel Fléty – TOOLS FOR GESTURAL CONTROL OF SOUND SYNTHESIS

Workshop Statement (‘Seminar’)

This seminar will present musical applications demonstrating various types of interaction between a musician’s gestures and computer-generated sounds. The following tools will be presented: Max/MSP (Ircam/Opcode/Cycling74), a graphic programming environment used for the interactive creation and manipulation of Midi and audio data; and AtoMICPro (Ircam), the voltage-to-Midi converter which serves as the connecting link between gestural and the computer. Theoretical explanations of sound synthesis, Midi control and sensor technology will complement these practical demonstrations.

  • Benjamin Thigpen, musical assistant
  • Emmenuel Fléty, electronical engineer
