Hi all --

This workshop might be of interest to CLM users on this list. Please
forward as appropriate....




Dear friends,

The Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics at Stanford 
University is holding a workshop on Linux Sound: Open Source Music 
Synthesis, Composition, and Audio Programming this summer that you 
might be interested in.


June 24 - July 5, 2002
Instructors: Fernando Lopez-Lezcano, Miller Puckette, Christopher 

Linux offers a wonderful environment for low-latency audio 
development, performance, and composition.  Let us help flatten the 
linux audio learning curve and get you up and running within just a 
few short weeks!

CCRMA has been using the Linux operating system for music composition, 
synthesis, and audio DSP research since 1996. This workshop will focus 
on currently available open source tools and environments for computer 
music research and composition using Linux. The workshop will include 
an overview of some of the most popular linux distributions and a 
brief installation clinic with specific focus on audio, midi and 
real-time performance (dealing with both hardware and software). Low 
level sound and midi drivers reviewed will include oss, oss-free and 
alsa. Environments for sound synthesis and composition will include 
the Common Lisp based clm system, STK (c++) and pd (c). Many other 
interesting tools like the snd  sound editor (and its internal scheme 
programming environment) will also be covered. Due to the very dynamic 
nature of the open source community and software base more programs 
will probably be included by the time the workshop starts. The 
workshop will also include a brief tour of sound processing and 
synthesis techniques. Familiarity with computers and programming 
languages is helpful.

You can get campus housing, enjoy the facilities and take in the 
Stanford Jazz Festival every evening. <http://www.stanfordjazz.org/>

We hope to see you this summer!

Miller, Fernando, and Chris
