NYCResistor Art of the Game Party

Two saturdays ago, NYC Resistor presented Art of the Game, an art show / party showcasing over a dozen works of game-inspired art. Though I’m a bit biased, being one of the featured artists, I have to say the event was a huge success. Every piece on display was personally very inspiring. Here are two flickr photo sets from the event:

1 Session, 3 hours, with personalized post-session project with instructor via email.
Cost $75

Csound is the most powerful computer music language in the world, with a direct lineage to Max Mathews’ original Music-N languages. The focus of this class will be a synthesis of three topics: The Csound language, synthesizer theory, and composing weird alien music.

Together, we will demystify the assembly-like syntax of the Csound language. We will cover the fundamentals of synthesizer theory, including: oscillators, filters, envelopes, amplifiers and modulation. Finally, we’ll tie it all together by composing sounds in the vein of classic Sci-Fi movies.
