STEIM workshop announcement:

Emergent Content Creation Using Simple Genetic Algorithms
By Kim Cascone

The workshop will be 4 days, held from October 21 - 24, 2004.
The deadline for applications is October 1st, to enable Kim to start 
communicating with the applicants before the actual workshop.

The course cost is €160. Registration is required and places are 
limited to 12.

The concept for this workshop was inspired by John Maeda’s "Human 
Powered Computer Experiment" (http://www.imrf.or.jp/HPCE.html). In this 
experiment Maeda recreated the internal operations of a simple computer 
using people to physically transport handwritten instructions and data 
to and from the CPU, RAM, FPU, etc. Participating in this type of 
experiment enables one to best learn abstract concepts using their body 
as a medium.

In similar spirit, this workshop develops a group workflow using the 
model of a simple genetic algorithm (SGA) with the end result being an 
emergent work of music/sound art.

Participants need only bring a laptop (Ethernet and/or Wi-Fi card is 
needed), their favorite audio software tools, a web browser and a 
spirit of experimentation and exploration.
