International Csound Users Group Meeting on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 at 14:00 EDT
The International Csound Users Group Meeting is a monthly virtual meeting for all those interested in learning, using, or contributing to the development of the Csound system for computer music. Meetings are also open to the discussion of issues of computer music in general, both musical and technical.
The meeting is hosted and chaired by myself, Michael Gogins, on Zoom. The time is the first Wednesday of each month at 18:00 UTC (14:00 EDT). Meetings can accommodate up to 100 participants with reasonably good audio quality, and normally last from one to two hours.
Leonardo Foletto will present a demo of a sampler powered by deep learning that generates guitar sounds based on a requested speech input. Leonardo is one of the two coordinators of the “Production” group responsible for building the actual app (basically UI + the sampler + putting together the whole deep learning pipeline coming from the other research groups) and the sampler itself is built in Csound using ctcsound. This project is housed here.
I will introduce facilities for using my algorithmic composition system CsoundAC in Python with music generated by other algorithmic composition systems, including athenaCL (Python), musx (Python), blue (Java/Python), and arbitrary external commands.
I may have more news about the VST3 opcodes for Csound.
Please email me at email@example.com to suggest your own topics for presentation or discussion. Suitable topics include:
Questions on how to install or configure Csound.
Questions on how best to use Csound.
Presentation of new techniques for sound synthesis or algorithmic composition with Csound.
Presentation of new features in Csound.
Presentation of new tools to be used with Csound or to augment Csound.
Presentation of music made with Csound or other electroacoustic music (but see below).
We do welcome the presentation and discussion of pieces made with Csound, or indeed of any piece of electroacoustic music created by a participant, but all music (excepting live demonstrations) should be hosted on some external platform such as YouTube or SoundCloud, as we will play only the first few minutes of a piece during the meeting in order not to disrupt the flow of discussion. For this reason, we prefer to announce pieces for upcoming meetings in advance.
Michael Gogins is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
