Creative Coding II: Interactive audio-visual coding

Maximum 14 participants

Workshop requirements:
Please bring a laptop with Processing downloaded and installed

This 3-day creative coding workshop is an introduction to creating audio-visual works that can be controlled with physical interfaces.

Facilitators Sohrab Motabar and Jeyong Jung are composers who adopt algorithmic approaches and explore real-time systems that translate sound into visuals and vice versa.
They intend to make systems that seem to operate randomly or by themselves but are still strongly influenced by human control.

In the workshop, Sohrab and Jeyong will share their knowledge on these systems, including various methods of converting sounds to images and vice versa. We will use the programming language Processing.

The class will start from elementary examples before we gradually move to slightly more developed ones. Below is a brief schedule of the workshop.

Day 1: basics of audio-and-visual programming; realisation of user-interfaces
Day 2: Converting between audio and visuals
Day 3: thinking about event-scheduling; ending with a show-and-tell

Let us meet at the workshop and have fun coding! Don’t hesitate to email us with questions at

Sohrab Motabar
Sohrab Motabar (1984) is a composer from Tehran. With regards to states of suspension and dazzled motion his music resonates like a maze for the listener. He composes with algorithms, chaotic functions and non-standard synthesized sounds as a way to give rise to obscured dimensions and experimental modes of perceiving and listening. In 2018 he graduated from the Institute of Sonology. In addition, he also actively collaborates in select projects with artists from other disciplines.

Jeyong Jung
Composer Jeyong Jung devises algorithms and employs computer-aided processes in carrying out composition processes. Jung makes use of real-time probabilistic methods and statistical constructs in executing non-standard sound synthesis. The pieces of his composed at the Analogue Studio of the Institute of Sonology comprise his main repertoire.
