Women in Computer Music Scholarship
Summer workshop opportunity to study SuperCollider
Promote the engagement of young women in the field of electronic and computer music.
HOW IT WORKS:
Up to 2 (two) women (between ages 16-30) will be selected to attend the SuperCollider Summer Workshop at CCRMA with full tuition scholarship. A certificate will be given to each participant upon successful completion of the workshop.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
The SuperCollider workshop is a fun, fast-paced course dedicated to the creation of electronic music through the powerful SuperCollider language. The course is interdisciplinary by nature, combining aspects of music composition and performance with sound synthesis, programming, and computer science. Class size is usually around 10, which allows for a very friendly and focused learning environment tailored to each student's individual needs.
The Stanford Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA, pronounced 'karma') is an internationally renowned multi-disciplinary facility where composers and researchers work together using computer-based technology both as an artistic medium and as a research tool.
HOW TO APPLY:
Young women enthusiastic about music and computer science are invited to apply. Age range is approximately between 16 and 30. No previous background in computer music is required.
