Masterclass Banner


In this masterclass participants will have the opportunity to further their understanding of FTM&Co. IRCAM researcher-developer Diemo Schwarz will lead the workshop and cover topics on a project by project basis. Diemo will discuss his own work and the use of FTM&Co in his own projects.

This masterclass is ideal for those who already have experience using FTM&Co in their work, or for participants of the 4-day introduction workshop who wish to be exposed to more advanced and applied uses of the FTM&Co extensions.

Diemo Schwarz is a researcher--developer in real-time applications of computers to music with the aim of improving musical interaction, notably sound analysis--synthesis, and interactive corpus-based concatenative synthesis.

Since 1997 at Ircam (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique--Musique) in Paris, France, he combined his studies of computer science and computational linguistics at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, with his interest in music, being an active performer and musician. He holds a PhD in computer science applied to music from the University of Paris, awarded in 2004 for the development of a new method of concatenative musical sound synthesis by unit selection from a large database.  This work is continued in the CataRT application for real-time interactive corpus-based concatenative synthesis within Ircam`s Real-Time Music Interaction (IMTR) team.
