Singularity Webinars – #Programme —> #Sleep —> #MUSIC! by Carla García

Now it’s time for Carla García, St. Peter’s School former pupils, to present the second webinar of the Cycle “Ordinary People Living the Singularity”.

“You love computers AND you love music? Well then, Sonic Pi is your perfect match! Now more than ever, musicians are benefitting from the incredibly wide range of possibilities that programming sound offers. With only a computer and the imaginative impulse of the composer, any sound can be produced and any music can be created.”

“During this Webinar, I will be showing you some musical ideas with Sonic Pi, an open-source, music-specific programming language. You are all welcome to come along with your own Sonic Pi*. Let’s jam a little!”

Carla G. Ginjaume (b. 1995) is a Spanish composer based in Barcelona. She is a graduate from ESMUC, having studied with Bernat Vivancos and Aureliano Cattaneo. She recently finished her Master of Music in Composition at the Royal College of Music in London, awarded with the Charles Stewart Richardson Scholarship. Her professors in the UK include Haris Kittos, Simon Holt, Jonathan Cole and Gilbert Nouno.

Her works have been performed by a varied range of ensembles such as the Royal Northern Sinfonia (winning the third prize of the RNS Young Composers Competition Prize 18/19), the Composers Studio Ensemble, the Curious Chamber Players, the ensemble BCN216 and the Ensemble Ticino Musica. She is a founder member of the emerging, London-based group Locus Ensemble (instagram: @locus_ensemble), which commissions and performs works by young composers. Her music explores and contemplates timbre to bring out fresh sound worlds. The electronics she employs to process sound are based on pre-recorded samples of acoustic instruments in order to magnify their possibilities. You can find updates on her music on her instagram (@carla_ginjaume).
