Training at Digitópia

Experimentation and immediate creation validate the intensive courses of Digitópia, the technological and digital platform of Casa da Música. Eminently practical, these courses reflect the opportunities of musical achievement that are now available to most people, relying on processes and languages of creative programming.

Exploring the software at the service of musical performance or building sound narratives and sculptures gives content to these training sessions design for musicians, digital artists, programmers, teachers and other professionals or students interested in electronic music and digital art. In order to celebrate 10 years of Digitópia, this year's program involves partner institutions of Casa da Música in five new proposals conducted by a panel of Portuguese and foreign trainers.

This year the layout of the courses will be different. Two of the proposals will take up only one day (Saturday). The others continue to last a whole weekend, but Saturday’s and Sunday’s sessions are no longer independent, and there is only one ticket for both days.

  • Composing for the Eye and Ear: A Guide to Building an Interactive Audiovisual Performance System

    15 October

    10:30–18:00 · Sala de Ensaio 3

    Musicians, DJs, digital artists, programmers, teachers and

    other professionals interested in electronic music and digital art

    € 15

    The exploration of programming codes and other technological tools fulfils a purpose: to create art in a consistent manner. Sound and image share the spotlight on a path that resorts to practical examples and Max language, video editing in Premier or sound design in Ableton, among other programs, to support the development of interactive audiovisual performance systems with artistic sensitivity.

    Used by professionals of electronic music worldwide, Ableton Live is at the service of live performance, adjusting to the musical practices of each musician, from composition to DJing or sound design. With the introduction of Max4Live, it now allows users to develop their own devices. These opportunities are the basis for a course that introduces the principles of creation and performance in order to reach the advanced features of the software.

    The intention is to explore the invisible world around us with portable antenna receivers, designed during the course, in order to detect electromagnetic fields and assign electronic sounds to them. Sound art, sculpture and electronics are combined in a creating process carried out in groups with two participants. Each pair chooses the design and materials they want to work with in the construction of these unique antennas-sculptures to search for hidden sounds.

  • Interactive Music

    11 and 12 February

    11:00–18:00 · Sala de Ensaio 2

    Musicians, DJs, digital artists, programmers, teachers and

    other professionals interested in electronic music and digital art

    € 30

    “Interactive Music” may sound like a redundancy, but it serves the purpose of a course on how to use digital technology for the creation of interactive musical experiences. On the first day, a piano learns how to interact with the pianist (or with a clarinet, even with a whistle). In the second day, we explore the a.bel platform in multiuser interactive practices. Finally, we invite the public to experience the results in a small interactive concert.

  • Live Coding & Performance

    06 and 07 May

    11:00-18:00 · Sala de Ensaio 10

    Musicians, DJs, digital artists, programmers, teachers and

    other professionals interested in electronic music and digital art

    € 30

    Live coding consists of altering the “on-the-fly” code when a program is already running, and it is a performance tool used by many musicians. On the first day, the approach to this creative process will result in a small piece of music using only software. The acquired knowledge will then be applied in different contexts, such as the inclusion of acoustic instruments, MIDI controllers and the connection between sounds and images.
