This workshop will focus on granular synthesis and live interaction with sensors using the SuperCollider programming environment and the Arduino electronics prototyping platform. After an introduction to the software/hardware involved, participants will be guided in using miscellaneous sensors to interface with their own granular synthesis algorithm and start working on their own interactive pieces.

His practice is based predominantly in sound among various other media. He has performed and exhibited works internationally and has released albums through numerous labels. Koutsomichalis has collaborated with a number artists including Z'EV, Francisco Lopez, Robin McGinley and Marc Behrens.
