Extempore workshop @ ICLC ‘20, Feb 6, Limerick IE

If you’re coming to the upcoming International Conference on Live Coding (ICLC ‘20) in Limerick, Ireland, then it’s not too late to sign up for my workshop Introduction to music-making in Extempore. Even if you’re not coming to the rest of the conference, you can still sign up for the workshop.

Harrison & Fi making mad beats with Extempore

This workshop will provide a hands-on introduction to making music in the live coding programming environment Extempore. The workshop will cover:

  • the fundamentals of making sound (starting from “hello sine”)

  • an overview of Extempore’s audio signal chain (especially the built-in and highly configurable modular synth)

  • introduction to note-level live coding with the Extempore pattern language

No Extempore or previous live coding experience necessary (although experienced practitioners are welcome as well). Just bring a laptop with macOS, Windows or Ubuntu installed and we’ll start from scratch. All the required software is freely-available, and a binary release of Extempore will be provided (for Windows/macOS) so those users won’t need to build Extempore from scratch

Registration is through Eventbrite, and if you’ve got any questions send me an email or ping me on twitter.
