The best way to become familiar with new creative tools is to try them out yourself, and the Open Soundstudio is the perfect place to do it. In addition to workshops and courses where you can learn to compose with a computer and produce music or new soundscapes, there is always an opportunity to experience the many devices and programs here for the first time. You can also discover the world of music visualization here and try it yourself with simple tools.

The Music Robot System TOC ONE explores the sound properties of physical objects. It can be used to squeeze sound and rhythms out of almost everything — from music instruments like drums to experimental materials like metal sheets, household items or old car parts. The robotic actuators are mounted on clamps, to be attached in a free manner to surfaces, objects and instruments. They are controlled with standard music systems like Ableton Live or a keyboard.
This project is co-funded by the European Commission’s DG CONNECT, in the framework of the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Union under the S+T+ARTS programme’s Regional STARTS Centers.
Adult Swim Choir
David Li (UK)
Choir is an interactive web application in which you are invited to open a mouth via touchscreen, which then begins to sing a melody. Depending on how far and for how long the mouth is pulled downwards, the other three mouths begin to sing until a fourpart choir is formed. The harmony between the four voices is created by a neuronal network, which was trained with chorale pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach and statistically predicts how Bach would have harmonized the melody.
