Fuse Factory Workshops
How the Squid Sings (It Screams)Workshop instructor: Bhob RaineyWorkshop fee: $17.50This workshop will focus on sonification. In particular, we’ll look at translating the electrical behavior of squid neurons into sound waves. We’ll see how this particular translation carries its own, idiomatic timbres and phrasing, and we’ll make a musical piece focusing on these qualities. For context, we’ll examine some historical sonification techniques and talk about what goals one might be pursuing when employing sonification.No previous experience in electronics, computer programming, or playing an instrument is required. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own headphones and laptop.Note: To preregister for the workshop, please visit http://thefusefactory.org/
Introduction to SuperColliderInstructor: Bhob RaineyWorkshop fee: $37.50SuperCollider is a powerful environment for sound synthesis and algorithmic composition, but many newcomers encounter a steep learning curve. This hands-on workshop will get you up and running with SuperCollider, exploring classic synthesis techniques and, tying into the previous lecture, implementing some sonification strategies. Attendees will get a sense of what particular strengths SuperCollider has in comparison to Max/MSP, PD, etc.No previous experience with electronics, computer programming, or playing an instrument is required, although some experience with sound editing is helpful. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a pair of headphones and a laptop with SuperCollider installed.Note: To preregister for the workshop, please visit http://thefusefactory.org/

Wake Up Sangha - Everything we need is already here
Dear friends,Join us for our January Sangha meeting. There will be sitting meditation, walking meditation, a reading, and sharing from the heart."We all have the tendency to struggle in our bodies and in our minds. We believe that happiness is possible only in the future. The realization that we have already arrived, that we don't have to travel any further, that we are already here, can give us peace and joy. The conditions for our happiness are already sufficient. We only need to allow ourselves to be in the present moment, and we will be able to touch them. What are we looking for to be happy? Everything is already here. We do not need to put an object in front of us to run after, believing that until we get it, we cannot be happy. That object is always in the future, and we can never catch up to it. We are already in the Pure Land, the Kingdom of God. We are already a Buddha. We only need to wake up and realize we are already here." (Thich Nhat Hanh, from "Cultivating the Mind of Love")Wake Up is an active global community of led by young mindfulness practitioners, aged 18-35, and inspired by the teachings of Zen teacher and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh. We come together to practice awareness in order to take care of ourselves, nourish happiness, and contribute to building a healthier and a more compassionate society.
