THE ART OF SHADER PROGRAMMING

THIS WORKSHOP IS FREE TO ATTEND AND IS A PART OF THE EYE FOR AN EAR FESTIVAL

Shaders are small programs that run on the graphic cards of computers. They are a bit strange to deal with but executes extremely fast. In this workshop we will program shaders to make realtime graphics with audio signals as input material. That means… we take some sound, draw the waveform in some way, and last apply some shader to get weird and wonderful looking shapes generated by the audio.

Please Pre-Register by sending an email to info@nkprojekt.de

The graphics we will code in C++ using the Cinder framework, and the audio can come from a microphone, a sound file or some other realtime synthesis program like SuperCollider or PureData.

Aimed at people with a bit of knowledge in programming, but will also be accessible for others. We will provide a lot of examples to hack – you should provide the sound via your favorite sound files or synthesis programs.
