Who is SCUG for?
Are you a musician interested in making digital music? Are you a computer programmer that would like to make music with concepts you might be already familiar with? Have you ever started using SuperCollider but found it difficult due to luck of support? Are you an experienced SuperCollider user looking for constructive criticism of your work? If you think you are one of the above or if you are just curious on what SuperCollider is and you live in the area of Brighton & Hove, the Sussex SuperCollider Users Group (SCUG) at Sussex is the place to be. It is basically for anybody that is or thinks they might be interested in SuperCollider.
What is SuperCollider?
SuperCollider is one of the most efficient and good sounding audio programming environments existing today. It is used by musicians, artists, and scientists for all kind of work with sound, from generative music, instrument building, sound installations, analysis of sound to sonification of big data. SuperCollider is open source and free.
What is the SCUG?
SuperCollider Users Group is a community of SuperCollider users of all stages interested to meet up and share ideas, code and music. The events are organised by Music Informatics & Performance Technology Lab and are hosted by Sussex Humanities Lab. The meetings are ideal for presenting work, discussing projects, collaborate and learn from each other. However, most importantly these sessions will have a social aspect in which coding, debugging and music making will happen while socialising with other SuperCollider users, perhaps with some drinks and snack.
