Saturday, November 5, 2011; 12-2:30pm at the Experimental Media and Movement Arts Lab (EMMA). 1224 Kinnear Rd., Columbus, Ohio. Isadora is a program for interactive control of digital media during performance, offering real-time manipulation of video and audio. This workshop will introduce basic programming skills in Isadora, enabling participants to build a patch that has the ability to:play and mix several recorded and live video feeds simultaneously; manipulate attributes in real-time, e.g. zoom, speed, delay, brightness, color, looping, special effects; and create a user-friendly control page with sliders and buttons that alter video and audio during performance. In addition, the workshop will demonstrate how to connect Isadora to required hardware at EMMA such as the video switcher, projectors, and cameras. This workshop is open to students at the Ohio State University. No prior experience is necessary, although basic computer literacy and some familiarity with the EMMA lab is an asset. Participants will be limited to eight. Please email Teoma Naccarato (.2) to register. More information about Isadora.
