Sound, Space & Interaction

Course 2012-2013

This course will focus on many topics in parallel: basics about sound and timbre, basics about acoustics, communication models incorporating space (and distance) and interaction models based on sound.

The assignment of the course is as follows: You’re supposed to make an interactive, network based, application that communicates with the audience/participant(s)/user(s) solely by means of sound. In order to achieve this you have to design your own communicating sonic language.

The assignment has to be realized with the MAX/MSP programming environment. Basics about MAX/MSP will be addressed both in the classes and in the labs.
