A workshop on synthetic sound and modular thought.
Synthetic Sound and Modular Thought
Patch Up! is a workshop on modular synthesis hosted by York University and the Responsive Ecologies Lab at Ryerson University that brings together scholars, artists, educators, musical instrument designers and engineers to explore modular synthesis and its impact on music and multimedia arts. Through historical, technical, social, aesthetic, pedagogical, artistic and other perspectives, the workshop will open a collective reflection and sharing of knowledge on the powerful connections between technology, creativity, culture and personal agency.
April 1-3, 2022
The workshop brings together scholars, artists, engineers, educators and entrepreneurs in order to break down the boundaries that often separate these spheres, thus leading to a collaborative exchange of knowledge as well as new forms of cultural engagement and artistic practice.
