EMPAC To Offer Workshops

The Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) is offering two unique one-week workshops this summer, each suited for advanced undergrads, graduate students, and professionals.

Composing for Large-Scale Multi-Channel Loudspeaker Environments offers the opportunity to work in a very large 24-channel speaker set-up plus two “smaller” rigs (16 and 8 channels) while studying with Hans Tutschku (Harvard), one of the foremost composers for such configurations. This is a workshop with an emphasis on hands-on work, as well as discussion of participants’ pieces, aesthetics, and technology. The workshop will be held June 5–10.

Physical Modeling for Digital Audio Workstation Plug-ins offers the opportunity to get an introduction on using computers to generate physical models of analog audio circuits with plug-in guru David Amels (Bomb Factory) as instructor. Participants will work together to reverse engineer and model the Shure Level-Loc (limiter/compressor unit) with a Shure SM57 microphone attached — and then integrate it as functional VST plug-in. The workshop will be held July 18–23.
