Algorhythm workshop: hacking church bell patterns
Tue 20 October 2015, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
In this workshop percussionist and composer Dom Aversano will demonstrate how church bells ringing patterns can be used to generate a vast array of rhythms. Once demonstrated participants will then be invited to explored how these patterns might be hacked, and encouraged to discover new creative possibilities.
Dom Aversano used church bell algorithms to create an instrument that was part of the award winning Cave of Sounds installation. He will showcase various parts of the patch used in the installation, programmed using the open source environment Pure Data.
Participants are encourage to bring whatever technology they use for music making; whether a laptop with a programming language on, a piece of hardware, or a traditional musical instrument. Ideas will take precedence over tools.
The format of the workshop will be:
7:00 - 7:45pm –– Dom Aversano showcased bell ringing algorithms
7:45 - 8:40pm –– Participants hacking session
8:40 - 9pm –– Participants feedback their ideas
