SMOLTECH: CLIVE WORKSHOP w/ mathr [Claude Heiland-Allen + Laura Netz]

IKLECTIK presents,

w/ mathr [Claude Heiland-Allen + Laura Netz]

Saturday 15 January 2022 | 12pm – 5pm

Tickets: £25 General Admission (max 15 people)

Workshop by mathr on live-coding audio in the C programming language using Clive. Clive is a C audio live-coding skeleton. It allows you to hot-swap digital signal processing callbacks, providing automatic C code recompilation, object code reloading, and state preservation. This enables you to perform live: when you hit “Save” in the text editor, the sound changes according to changes made in the code.

The workshop will get Clive running on your system, and cover basics of Linux system administration and Git (a version control system) via command line interface. Then it will move on to digital signal processing, and various sound synthesis and modification techniques.

To participate:
you need to bring headphones and your own laptop running a GNU/Linux OS.
Note that Clive does not work on Windows or macOS. If you have a 64bit Intel/AMD-compatible CPU (x86_64 or amd64; not i686; not arm; not aarch), and your system allows to boot from a USB stick, it is possible to run a custom Linux “live” operating system, without modifying your PC.
