[rohrpost] Workshop *Mapping Your Creative Territory*

Wir möchten sie auf einen ZKM Workshop zum Thema *Musik und das Problem
der Navigation in großen Datenmengen* aufmerksam machen. Wir freuen uns,
wenn Sie selbst Interesse haben oder die Ankündigung an jemand anderen
weiterreichen, der Interesse haben könnte.

Mit besten Grüßen

We would like to announce a ZKM workshop concerning the topics of music
and the problem of navigating detail in musical real time instruments.
If you know somebody who is interested in this topic, please, forward
the mail.

Yours sincerely,
Silke Sutter

The application of new tools for scientific visualization to music
with Joel Ryan
for composers, media artists, mathematicians, and computer scientists


Navigating detail in musical real time

Modern music attempts to manage an unprecedented plethora of detail. The
massive data problem is as much the nature of contemporary culture as it
is the gift of our new computer based tools. This quest is not unique to
music and mathematical tools have recently emerged to deal with
understanding complex heterogeneous systems of data. The workshop*s goal
is to find ways to coordinate the recognition and recovery of states of
complex real time instruments. A target example could be called the
"Preset Mapping Problem". The workshop focusses on music, but the
solutions might be directly applicable to the control of any real time
system. The focus will not be on the musical time line or score problem.

The workshop is prospecting for new tools for composition and music
performance suggested by innovations in the visualization and navigation
of scientific data. Methods are emerging in fields as diverse as
immunology, protein synthesis, chaotic dynamics and data mining of
texts, all fields which have come to life since computational based
techniques have brought their complexity with in grasp. The sheer
immensity of the problems attempted has stimulated the search for
intermediate tools for sifting multidimensional avalanches of detail.
Perhaps our faculty of visual analysis can add to what our ears tell us.


The workshop is addressed to participants:
+ who have expertise in practical music platforms like SuperCollider or
Max and musician/composers  who need this solution
+ who have experienc in one of the sciences which already have practical
solutions for large data space problems
+ who can act as mathematical references

The workshop is limited to 10 participants. The language is English.

Joel Ryan

is a composer, inventor and scientist. He is a pioneer in the design of
musical instruments based on real time digital signal processing. He
currently works at STEIM in Amsterdam, tours with the Frankfurt Ballet
and is Docent at the Institute of Sonology in The Hague.


The fee for the 5-days workshop is 200 Euro (for students 100 Euro).
The deadline for the application is 18 November 2002.

The project INTERFACING REALITIES covers a series of four master classes
that V2_ in Rotterdam realizes within the European Culture 2000 program.
The master classes concentrate on new artistic concepts for the usage or
creation of databases and archives. Interfacing Realities is a
cooperation with the ZKM in Karlsruhe, C3 in Budapest and AEC in Linz.
