|Description:||Saturday, May 25 • 4:00pm - 6:00pm Session 15B: Workshop / Atelier: The McMaster Cybernetic Orchestra The McMaster Cybernetic Orchestra. Introduction to Participatory Live Coding - a workshop by the Cybernetic Orchestra: The Cybernetic Orchestra at McMaster University is a laptop orchestra with a busy performance/recording schedule, an open community of practice, and a research site for investigating new types of musical labour. Our main mode of performance is live coding, making and altering small computer programs during performance, often with a network synchronized beat and often taking advantage of an ability to freely appropriate each other's code. Increasingly, the techniques and style of the orchestra tend towards a strongly physical performance of coding actions. The work of the Cybernetic Orchestra - like the broader live coding movement of which we are a part - unsettles the relationships between amateur and professional, performance and recording, sonic and visual. We invite the attendees of the IASPM conference to bring their laptops and ears to this hands-on workshop session where the members of the orchestra will share our secrets, help you steal them, and anticipate lively discussion about the resonances and possibilities of these new forms of musical work. All required software is free and open-source and will be provided at the workshop. The work of the Cybernetic Orchestra can be heard at: soundcloud.com/cyberneticOrchestra|
