SYNTHESTHESIA Category : Arts Date / Period : June 14 to November 14, 2012 BOOKMARK Telephone: 514 866-6767 #4219 Toll-free: Reservation: E-mail: URL: Overview Overview SYNTHESTHESIA is a unique, fun, and innovative workshop. Over the course of this workshop participants produce experimental sound compositions based on black and white collages they will create. These collages become visual ‘musical scores’, which are analyzed by SYNTHESTHESIA, an open-source software, in order to generate sounds and explore different sound properties. The software was created especially for our workshop. Come and experience SYNTHESTHESIA and familiarize yourself with certain sound properties, reflect on different ways to represent sound through images, and demystify live creation and improvisation.
