Advanced real-time sound and data processing with FTM&Co

STEIM is hosting this 4-day advanced Max/MSP workshop by Ircam  
researcher-developer Diemo Schwarz in collaboration with the Music  
Technology departement from the Utrecht school of music (HKU). The  
workshop will provide an introduction to the FTM&Co extensions for Max/ 
MSP, looking into the basics and the advanced use of the Ircam  
libraries FTM, MnM, Gabor and CataRT for interactive real-time musical  
and artistic applications.

The basic idea of FTM is to extend the data types exchanged between  
the objects in a Max/MSP patch by complex data structures such as  
matrices, sequences, dictionaries, break point functions, tuples and  
whatever might seem helpful for the processing of music, sound and  
motion capture data. It also comprises visualization and editor  
components, and operators (expressions and externals) on these data  
structures, together with file import/export (SDIF, audio, MIDI, text,  
etc) operators.

As examples of applications in the areas of sound analysis,  
transformation and synthesis, gesture following, and manipulation of  
musical scores, we will look at the parts and packages of FTM that  
allow arbitrary-rate signal processing (Gabor), matrix operations,  
statistics, machine learning (MnM), corpus-based concatenative  
synthesis (CataRT), sound description data exchange (SDIF), and Jitter  
support. The presented concepts will be tried and confirmed by  
applying them to programming exercises of real-time musical  
applications, and free experimentation.

Dates: May 10 - 13 from 10:00 - 16:00
Location: STEIM, Achtergracht 19, Amsterdam
Cost: €200 (free for MT/HKU students, 50% discount for MT/HKU alumni)

Registration is required for this workshop and can only be done  
online: http://www.steim.org/steim/registration.php?id=149.
Please register early to ensure a place. Places are limited to 15.

This workshop is a collaboration with the Music Technology departement  
from the Utrecht school of music (HKU). If you're a student or alumni  
from MT/HKU please indicate this in the registration form. Students  
can participate for free, alumni will receive a 50% discount. Students  
are required to pay €50 at the time of registration, which they will  
be refunded on the first day of the workshop.




Teacher bio

Diemo Schwarz is a researcher-developer in real-time applications of  
computers to music with the aim of improving musical interaction,  
notably sound analysis-synthesis, and interactive corpus-based  
concatenative synthesis.

Since 1997 at Ircam (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique-- 
Musique) in Paris, France, he combined his studies of computer science  
and computational linguistics at the University of Stuttgart, Germany,  
with his interest in music, being an active performer and musician. He  
holds a PhD in computer science applied to music from the University  
of Paris, awarded in 2004 for the development of a new method of  
concatenative musical sound synthesis by unit selection from a large  
database.  This work is continued in the CataRT application for real- 
time interactive corpus-based concatenative synthesis within Ircam's  
Real-Time Music Interaction (IMTR) team.
