Control Presents La Synthèse Humaine - Workshop #1 "Waveforms and Oscillations"
Please select from the dropdown menu above which donation price you would like to contribute. All donations go to support our event space and teachers.
Control is pleased to present the first in a new workshops series covering the basics of synthesis, acoustics, and voltage control.
La Synthèse Humaine has been designed to give the musician, sound designer, hobbyist, and enthusiast a basic working understanding of modular synthesizers - how they work, how modules interact, and how to create new sounds with them. Upon leaving this course we hope to give you the basic intuition you need to create any sound you can imagine (and, most importantly, the ones you can’t) with only a couple of modules.
The workshop series is split into three sections and will take place on Tuesday nights over the course of three classes:
I - Waveforms and Oscillations (Feb. 12th)
II - Processing and Modulation (Feb. 26th)
III - ...All Under Voltage Control (March 12th)
In this first session of the workshop - WAVEFORMS AND OSCILLATIONS - we will discuss basic acoustics, what sound is, and how your ear and brain makes sense of sound. We will then discuss all manner of audio rate generators (oscillators and noise sources), the basic waveforms, and introduce the concept of Fourier components and harmonics. Examples will be given using analog and digital wavetable oscillators.
Adding this to your cart reserves your seat in Workshop #1 "Waveforms and Oscillations." Separate sign-up for lectures #2 and #3 will open shortly.
We would like this class to be accessible to all regardless of income - as such we suggest a donation anywhere from $5 to $35 based on what you feel you would like to contribute.
This lecture will take place on Tuesday, February 12th from 6:30-7:30pm at Control, Brooklyn, NY. Control is located at 416 Lorimer St., #1R in Brooklyn, NY. Please see our about page for more details.
Leading the course will be Control's Chris Miller who holds a master's degree in signal processing from NYU and performs live somewhat often with an array of modular and non-modular synthesizers.
