Berklee College of Music and the Electronic Production and Design Department at 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.

Robert Pinsky

Robert Pinsky has done something few other poets have done. He appeared, as himself, on an episode of The Simpsons.

He is also the librettist for Death and the Powers, a new opera, with robots, by composer and creative director Tod Machover, professor of music and media and director of the Opera of the Future group at the MIT Media Lab.

Throughout his career, Pinsky has been dedicated to identifying and invigorating poetry's place in the world. He shows everyone that poetry is a living, dynamic, and musical art form.

As poet laureate, Pinsky founded the Favorite Poem Project, in which thousands of Americans—of varying backgrounds, all ages, and from every state—shared their favorite poems.

Pinsky received a B.A. from Rutgers University, and earned an M.A. and Ph.D. in philosophy from Stanford University, where he was a Stegner Fellow in creative writing.

He is the author of several collections of poetry, including Gulf Music: Poems (Farrar, Straus & Giroux: 2007); Jersey Rain (2000); The Figured Wheel: New and Collected Poems 1966-1996 (1996), which received the 1997 Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize and was a Pulitzer Prize nominee; The Want Bone (1990); History of My Heart (1984); An Explanation of America (1980); and Sadness and Happiness (1975).

Pinsky has taught at both Wellesley College and the University of California, Berkeley, and currently teaches in the graduate writing program at Boston University.

RSVP to Barbara Thomas at brthomas@berklee.edu or 617 747-2552.

The Liberal Arts Symposium is cosponsored by Liberal Arts, the Office for Cultural Diversity and Inclusion, and the Office of Faculty Development.
