(a 3-day seminar by Nick Collins)

This seminar will explore practical machine listening and machine 
learning methods within the SuperCollider environment, alongside 
associated technical and musical issues. Applications for such 
techniques range from autonomous concert systems, through novel musical 
controllers, to sound analysis projects outside of realtime informing 
musical composition. We will investigate built-in and third party UGens 
and classes for listening and learning, including the SCMIR library for 
music information retrieval in SuperCollider.

Level: intermediate
