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.
