Publishing Media in the Web and Podcasts

synopsis: This workshop is going to show how to include audio/video media in HTML, and what can be done with it. The problem of file formats will be discussed. Rather than hosting on centralized services like Soundcloud, the Open Web is important for free culture. I will also show how podcast feeds can be syndicated automatically, leading to a convenient user experience for listeners.

E.R.T.: a high-quality spring reverb

synopsis: By using the 43cm sized reverbtank (Accutronics 9´er series) classical spring reverb applications can be realized. The seperated input/output-drive controls provide a normal amplification of each signal. By using the whole saturation you get distortion. With the integrated VCF (lowpass with cutoff and resonance) its possible to sweep trough the frequency of the reverb signal. It could also be used as a „stand-alone-modul“ which is equiped with a seperated CV-in jack to modulate the cutoff freqency with external signals, like an LFO. In addition, we have added white noise which can be routed to the input signal or to the CV-in of the filter. The reverb spring is top mounted and provides another controlable factor for experimental sound design.

What is STFU?

STFU is an open international collective of electronic music artists, which has formed and grown on the internet. Its members occasionally come together in the real world to make electronic music events happen. The result is the STFU festival: one or more days devoted to sharing the passion for electronic music. The STFU festival travels around Europe, connecting to the local scene at each destination and establishing a diverse international network of artists and enthusiasts.
