Live Coding Supercollider at the Golem
The two-part "Research Colloquium" seminar explored the connection between Arts and Technological research. The first part particularly focused on the Arts and attempted to bring MDM students to tinker around with "supercollider" (SC) - a programming language that is interpreted in real time -. SC allows users to create sounds - and thus music - live. Thus the name live coding.
As the final project of the Seminar, students were asked to perform their creation at the Golem night club and thus contribute in Hamburgs first "Algorave".
The project and seminar not only playfully taught the basics of coding a new language but also introduced basic concepts of sound design, music composition and live performance.
