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
, a norns.community 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 connected to external gear (crow, jf, w/, midi).
Unfortunately i cant make it on the 14th. Wil there be anyway to watch it back?
yes, sessions will get recorded.
Woohoo! Looking forward to this!
20 characters of “So pumped for this!”
@eigen and @zbs. i am super stoked and excited to help kickoff this new series.
for folks who plan to join, i’d be grateful for some feedback on the the focus for the workshop.
a general overview of the krill script
how to use the script’s mod matrix
integration with external gear (MIDI, crow, Just Friends, W/)
review of the accompanying
study for beginning scripters
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.
i am sooper excited to see you all at tomorrow’s norns study group workshop covering the krill script.
@Helen has very kindly volunteered to volunteer for tomorrow’s workshop.
also, i have one more survey for you:
i am most interested in learning about how to integrate the krill script with…
Multi-slacking is what I do best!
it is not that often that i actually laugh out loud these days. thank you
10am LA is 6pm London time in Sharpie on my hand
Looking forward to it!
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.
running into some difficulty with the discord-based scope of events (namely, audio only lol) – we’re switching to twitch:
we may need a few minutes to get fully ready due to the late realization
we’re now live!
we’re up and running. come on and join!
@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!
@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.
