Workshop in Algorithmic Computer Music (WACM)

Applications are currently being accepted.

Dates for the 2014 WACM workshop are June 23 thru July 6.

Students will learn the Lisp computer programming language and create their own composition and analysis software. The instruction team will be led by professor emeritus David Cope, noted composer, author, and programmer.

The workshop is held in the Electronic Music Studios within the Digital Arts Research Center (DARC). 

The workshop is offered by the UCSC Arts Division and is limited to 15 students in order to maintain a very high student-to-teacher ratio. Instructors will be on hand at all times, including lab hours.

Please complete and submit an application via email. Prospective students must have an ability to read music and understand basic music theory as well as have at least a basic facility with computers (text editing, etc.). Students need not be active musicians nor programmers.
