Workshop Program Details

 In this workshop we will explore SuperCollider scripts to help with the sonification of neural networks and EEG data.
The goal of this workshop is to introduce the participants to the concept of Synthesis definitions and their use together with scores for non-realtime rendering. We will also look at the use of Ambisonics for the creation of b-format sonifications, which we then play back with various decoders taking advantage of the flexible proxyspace.  Participants should bring their own laptop with SuperCollider installed and a pair of headphones.


About Florian Grond

FlorianGrond.jpgCIRMMT collaborator Florian Grond ( is currently working on a FQRSC-funded research-creation postdoctoral project at the Input Device and Music Interaction Laboratory (IDMIL) at McGill in collaboration with the Société des Arts Technologiques (SAT). He previously received a postdoc award by the Centre for Interdisciplinary Rehabilitation Research in Greater Montreal (CRIR) for his research at Concordia University. He holds an MSc (2002) from the Karl-Franzens University in Graz (Austria). From 2003 to 2007, he worked as a research associate and guest artist at the Center for Art and Media (ZKM in Karlsruhe, Germany). He studied at the Cognitive Interaction Technology, Center of Excellence (CITEC) and received a doctorate from Bielefeld University, Germany, in 2013. His artistic and academic work, published in various journal articles, book chapters, and conference papers and exhibited in venues across Japan, Europe and North America, focuses on the intersections between art, science and technology with a special interest in auditory display, sonic interaction design and assistive technology.
