Bien plus qu'un simple outils de time stretching, Ircam Lab lance son nouveau logiciel TS.
Please join us on the CCRMA stage for a rare appearance with Bay Area master Tom Duff who will install and perform/operate Wire Machine, which takes Alvin Lucier's seminal composition/installation Music on a Long Thin Wire and runs with it.

7th International Conference on Digital Arts – Creating Digital e-Motions. Óbidos, Portugal, March 18-20, 2015
Call for Papers
ARTECH 2015 is the Seventh International Conference on Digital Arts, this time hosted by Universidade Aberta in the ancient village of Óbidos, Portugal. The goal of the conference is to promote the interest in the current digital culture and its intersection with art and technology as an important research field, but also as a common space for discussion and exchange of new experiences. Seeking to foster greater understanding about digital arts and culture across a wide spectrum of cultural, disciplinary, and professional practices, this edition of the conference also includes a strand concerned with mobile technologies such as smartphones and tablets that have become widespread creation instruments. To this end, we cordially invite scholars, teachers, researchers, artists, computer professionals, and others who are working within the broadly defined areas of digital arts, culture and education to join us.
Authors are invited to submit papers from all areas related to digital art, but also art installations, digital artefacts or media artworks, for review by an international committee. Both research and applications papers are of relevance to ARTECH 2015.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Art and Science Theory
- Audio-Visual and Multimedia Design
- Creativity Theory

Cooperation Memorandum Signing with the College of IT Engineering, Kyungpook National University, South Korea
Today, the Faculty of Computer and Information Science, University of Ljubljana hosted the representatives of the College of IT Engineering, Kyungpook National University, South Korea.
FRI will be participating at Researchers' Night for the first time this year. Two of our research projects will be presented at the event: the »Star Wars – Episode VII« exhibition, where the students created their own vision of the up-coming Stars Wars film, and the ParkinsonCheckTM app, designed for early detection and monitoring of Parkinson's disease.
Rencontre. Vendredi 26 septembre, 10h-18h Ircam, salle Stravinsky
Søren Andreasen will hold an Arduino workshop at BEK Monday 29. September – Friday 3. October. The workshop fee is 500,- NOK. Join by mailing us at bekatbekdotno
Beginners and those who need to brush up on the very basics, get a brief introduction to hardware KITs and the Arduino software Monday 29. and Tuesday 30. September between 16.00 – 21.00
Wednesday 1. – Friday 3. we follow up those who have a little experience with Arduino before and those who have their own projects they need help to get on with. Søren will also bring a proposal for a project for those who need some startspray. For this he use some solenoids, servo motors and a bunch of nobs and lights for you to work on. Wednesday and Thursday we also start at 16.00 and keep it going until we’re eighter finished or excausted, or both. Friday we sum up from 16.00 – 18.00.
This workshop costs 500,- NOK. For this you get a starting KIT and some things to work on (worth the workshop fee). If you need to use servos and solenoids, you pay the actual costs if you want to take them with you after the cource. You need to bring your own laptop. And it would be nice if you bring some power supplys (5 – 36 V) or some toy instruments or other electronic toys.
Workshop holder is Søren Andreasen, http://sorenandreasen.com
He did a similar workshop at BEK last year.

Knowledge is the highest value. Today we live in a time when technology represents a very important part of our lives and without which progress is impossible.
Ambisonic Toolkit for Reaper is now available as a public beta. While there is a well-established workflow for stereo production in DAWs, options have been more limited when working with Ambisonics. The Ambisonic Toolkit (ATK) brings together a number of tools and transforms for working with first order Ambisonic surround sound, and includes intriguing possibilities for spatial soundfield imaging.
The ATK toolset in intended to be both ergonomic and comprehensive, framed so that the user is enabled to ‘think Ambisonic’. By this, the ATK addresses the holistic problem of creatively controlling a complete soundfield, facilitating spatial composition beyond simple placement of sounds in a sound-scene. The artist is empowered to address the impression and imaging of a soundfield — taking advantage of the native soundfield-kernel paradigm the Ambisonic technique presents.
ATK has previously only been available for public release via the SuperCollider real-time processing environment. Cockos Reaper is a reasonably priced and flexible DAW, popular among many composers and sonic artists working with spatial sound. Reaper’s versatile design conveniently supports the ATK’s Ambisonic workflow model.
Using the JSFX text-based scripting language, the ATK has now been ported to plugins for Reaper. Several of the plugins, in particular the transforms, offers intuitive graphical user interfaces that helps visualise the effect of the various transforms. The plugins work with all operation system and processor versions that Reaper supports. On the Windows platform the plugins can also be used with other VST-hosts by means of the ReaJS ReaPlug plugin.
The ATK toolset has been been gathered, authored and developed by Joseph Anderson over a number of years, and is now a collaborative open source project. The port of ATK to Reaper has been done by Trond Lossius of BEK, Bergen Center for Electronic Arts.
A paper on ATK for Reaper by Trond Lossius and Joseph Anderson will be presented at the upcoming joint ICMC | SMC conference in Athens. If you are attending the conference, please drop by during the poster session next Thursday!Time and place:

What if there is a music making platform that allows you to create, edit and share the music with others no matter where or when? What if the system is as easy as visiting a web page? What if there is “Google Doc” for music?
This dissertation probes the potential of collaborative musicking using the web browser and cloud computing, and introduces a novel software framework, the Web Audio API eXtension (WAAX), that facilitates and supports the development of web music applications as well as various collaborative music creation scenarios.FREE Open to the Public
You can enjoy works by 4 different artists at BEK this weekend.
