In this workshop Khyam Allami will explore the subjects of tuning and the
inherited biases of music technology through his collaborative project
Apotome with creative studio Counterpoint. He will give a presentation
on tuning and its repressed possibilities, the problematics of music
technologies, and a practical introduction to using Leimma and Apotome.
Participants will be invited to create their own personalised tuning system
and to create generative music using it alongside an opportunity for an
improvised group performance.
Minimum requirements: participants should bring their laptops with
the latest version of Chrome browser, headphones, and a tape
Optional requirements: participants are encouraged to bring a
sound card with a MIDI (5-pin) input, plus/or a hardware
synthesiser (with MIDI input if without sound card) or a small one-
voice modular synth system (with MIDI input). Software synths
installed on a laptop and outputting through the sound card will
also be fine.
