The workshop will consist of three parts:

These softwares approach sound synthesis in significantly different ways, yet they share a common ground. Thus, the participants will learn conceptual use cases for these specific tools and expand their knowledge based on the presented contrast.

This last part is voluntary to participate.

Workshop will be held by former CAS/FAMU students Kryštof Pešek and Jiří Rouš and moderated by Sara Pinheiro.

It will take place in Punctum.

The language of the workshop will be decided according to the participants - if only Czech students, it will be in Czech, if international students it will be in English.
