Workshop and Round Table for Musicians and Sound Artists
syncing hard & soft – a therapy session for your personal computers split personality,

Usually, when talking about computer music, it is understood that the computer takes the role of an obedient and almost invisible servant, executing that exquisite piece of software the master wants to listen to. Problems arise when the servant revolts and malfunctions, leading to verbal and physical abuse, ultimately untimely replacement.
In this session participants will take a look at the laptop as a unique unity of hard- and software and try to find the means of uniting the two as a true instrument. Based on the model of the bandoneonbook (, the workshop aims to bridge the gap between hardware and the world of 0 and 1.

Participants should bring a laptop to this session, preferably with a version of Max/MSP or Pure Data already installed on it. (See or to download). No further knowledge is required (except for a bit of English).

Limited to 10 participants. Sign up here.

Please indicate upon registration what laptop-model / operating system you will be using and if you know Max or PD already.
