EMPAC – the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY – offers two unique one-week workshops this summer, each suited for advanced undergrads, graduate students, and professionals:

Composing for Large Scale Multi-Channel Loudspeaker Environments offers the opportunity to work in a very large 24-channel speaker set-up plus two “smaller” rigs (16 and 8 channels) while studying with Hans Tutschku (Harvard), one of the foremost composers for such configurations. This is a workshop with an emphasis on hands-on work, as well as discussion of participants’ pieces, aesthetics, and technology. June 5 – 10, 2011

Physical Modeling for Digital Audio Workstation Plug-ins is your chance to get an introduction on using computers to generate physical models of analog audio circuits with plug-in guru David Amels (Bomb Factory) as instructor. Participants will work together to reverse engineer and model the Shure Level-Loc (limiter/compressor unit) with a Shure SM57 microphone attached – and then integrate it as functional VST plug-in. The best way to learn with an expert in the field! July 18 – 23, 2011
