This assignment asks you to create a laptop orchestra instrument for a single hemispherical speaker array.

Specification

  • create an instrument for laptop and a single hemi using ChucK
  • should take advantage of the multi-channel aspect (or have a good reason to not do that)
  • consider issues of playability, expressiveness, sound, and also use in an ensemble setting
  • craft a very short piece for your instrument, describe/score it, turn in with assignment
  • each person should turn in their own instrument - however, working together is highly encouraged!


Resources

  • ChucK audio programming language
  • S.M.E.L.T. toolkit for mapping keyboard, mouse, joystick to sound
  • come to the tutorial on ChucK and S.M.E.L.T. on Sunday (4/6) at 3pm, CCRMA classroom
