Instructor: Rob Cosgrove
Rob Cosgrove will lead Sonic Links: An Introduction to Networked Performance, a workshop on how to utilize the internet and other networks for sound production. Intended for participants both new and with intermediate experience in broadcasting online, the workshop will prepare participants for high-fidelity sound-based networked performance and live-streaming over the web using free, open-source softwares.
Up until recently, tools for networked performance could be expensive, difficult to use, and limited to institutions with access to high-speed internet. With the rise of residential internet speeds, the development of more user-friendly networking applications, and increased public access to technology, networked performance has become available for many.
* Workshop space is limited. Masks required. Free masks are available.
