Processing Workshop: Light and Sound as Building Materials

  • Carnegie Mellon University 5000 Forbes Avenue Pittsburgh, PA, 15232 USA

In this intermediate Processing workshop with myself and Mike Szivos of SOFTLab, participants will be taught various ways of using sound as an input for crafting interactive environments. Mike will first give a detailed breakdown of the design and production of his installation for Sonos Studios: Light House.  Thereafter we will build a few simple programs for manipulating sound with dynamic input.  The workshop will conclude with participants developing a simple model for generating and exploring the behavioral and spatial qualities of sound.

Some basic knowledge of Processing is required.
