Masterclass Audiovisual composition in TouchDesigner with Grigory Gromov

Our new monthly workshop series kicks off with a TouchDesigner masterclass by Grigory Gromov! Whether you want to add compelling visuals on stage during your concert or project a moving backdrop onto your interpretive dance show, TouchDesigner has something for everyone. This masterclass will give you the tools to start experimenting within your own practice and create synergetic audio/visual performances.

  • 📅 January 21, 13:00 - 17:00
  • 📍 De Havenloods, Utrecht
  • 🎫 €40 (regular) / €20 (student, U-pas)

What is TouchDesigner?

TouchDesigner is a software product and visual programming language that can be used to create interactive 2D and 3D applications in real-time during performances. You can read more about it here: https://derivative.ca/UserGuide/TouchDesigner

What will we do?

During the masterclass Grigory will dive into the use of TouchDesigner to create breathtaking visuals that vibrate and resonate with the playing audio. How can you create colours, shapes and dynamic movements that respond to sound? How do you create harmonic performances that stimulate and wow your audience?

These are some of the topics that will be discussed:

  • Synchronisation of TouchDesigner with Ableton Live
  • Harmony of the senses in the creation of audiovisual work
  • Visual emphasis of musical accents
  • Interaction of sound with color, shape, depth and dynamics

The Artist

The masterclass is hosted by new media artist Grigory Gromov. Watch his performance during the ART MACHINES Festival here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CmZBX9vo-7f/

Grigory Gromov is an artist in the field of new media in the direction of audiovisual art. The purpose of his work is to study the human perception of audiovisual compositions and sound works. He uses different methods of extracting and creating sounds and noises for his sound compositions, from algorithmic computer systems to recording environmental sounds. Sound and visual medium are the environments in which Grigory works, so most of the time in his work is spent on sound experiments and studying the features of musical acoustics, creating a common context between visual and sound medium and creating audio-reactive generative graphics.

Practicalities

The masterclass takes place at De Havenloods, Utrecht on January 31st from 13:00 - 17:00. You are required to bring your own laptop with TouchDesigner installed (available at https://derivative.ca/UserGuide/Install_TouchDesigner).
