Berklee College of Music and the Electronic Production and Design Department @ Berklee are proud to host the 2nd International Csound Conference. Csound has evolved dramatically since its creation nearly 30 years ago, and so has the world of computer music.

  • Understanding Csound6 – What’s new and what are the new ways of working with Csound?
  • Using Csound To Make Music and Sound – What is the role of Csound in the current Computer Music, Film, Advertising, and DJ Scenes?
  • Learning Csound – Is there a place for Csound in contemporary electronic music studies? If so, then what is the place? One in many? An old way of working? A classic? Or is it Foundational and Core to a deeper understanding of techniques and technologies. How can we more effectively teach Csound and how can musicians learn to better use and appreciate Csound?
  • Csound Today and Tomorrow – How are composers, researchers, sound-designers, performers using Csound today and how would we like to use it tomorrow?

This conference looks to provide a venue for developers and users to discuss various aspects of the language through workshops, seminars, panels and live performance.

Keynote Speakers:

John Chowning
Jean-Claude Risset

You are invited to submit ideas relating to research, workshops, techniques, composition, or just hang out!
