norns study group workshops - #1 follow up (sunday, may 15, streaming)

context

despite universally difficult times, 2021 was a blast for the norns study group.

in addition to the usual encouraging vibe about scripting and norns-assisted music-making, it saw the emergence of norns.community, a tutoring program and pirate radio.

it’s now time to explore what the 2022 season has to offer…

>>> intoducing… workshops !

we collectively decided to organize interactive workshop sessions, gathering around a theme, a musician or a specific script.

if similar sessions happen from time to time on twitch, this format will allow better interactivity between the host and the attendees.

follow up session to yesterday’s, this time @jaseknighter will focus on the demonstrating krill connected to external gear (crow, jf, w/, midi).

would anyone like to volunteer to assist with the workshop this coming Saturday (5/14)?

mostly this will involve moderating the chat in discord and bringing questions to @jaseknighter’s attention as they arise.

folks interested in using midi for the workshop tomorrow should update the script as i just fixed a bug that prevented midi from working properly.

hey everyone!

running into some difficulty with the discord-based scope of events (namely, audio only lol) – we’re switching to twitch: Twitch

we may need a few minutes to get fully ready due to the late realization :sweat_smile:

we’re now live!

thanks @jaseknighter for this awesome deep dive into krill, despite the last minute twitcheroo (call @license for this trademarked word use) and how it impacted the whole audio/video routing you had prepared.

(full disclosure: we discovered 15 minutes before the event that discord “stage” mode is audio-only and that the video chat it capped to 25 person…).

i’m personally still blow away by how the “screen” part is not just a scope but more a “lens” that conditions the interpretation of the sequence/modulation!

thank you @eigen! many thanks as well to @Helen, @zbs, and @dan_derks for their help leading up to and during the workshop.

i hope those of y’all who attended found the workshop informative and am excited to see and hear the music you make with the krill script.

the video stream of the workshop is being uploaded to Vimeo now. i’ll update this note when it is available for viewing.
