Wednesday, 08.07 & Thursday, 09.07, 12:00 - 17:00h workshop
“/mode +v noise” by GOTO10
Tutors: Aymeric Mansoux & Jan-Kees van Kampen

“/mode +v noise” is a project of GOTO10, a collective of international
artists and computer programmers. It is based on IRC, the oldest
text-based Internet chat environment. This intervention will transform
an IRC chat room/channel into a simple, collaborative, text-based
online system for making music. Since IRC allows ‘chat bots’- computer
that pretend to be human conversation partners -, we will program such
a bot to create a collective musical composition environment based on
Internet chats. In this workshop, participants will explore two parts
of the project: designing sound generators in Supercollider that they
can control via a simple IRC bot written in Python.

Level: Intermediate
