Fluid Corpus Manipulation: Learning Resources

A lot of music making with computers involves working with collections of audio, and these collections are getting bigger and bigger. At the same time, techniques for analysing sound and manipulating data keep being developed.

Our project seeks to enable music making with collections of audio by making some of these techniques available for musical creative coding environments, alongside a set of supporting resources on these pages.

With these pages we're aiming to help musicians learn about how some of these techniques work, taking advantage of some of the excellent resources already online where possible. However, we also want to fill what we see as something of a gap, by exploring the creative musical possibilities of these techniques.

This site will grow as these musical possibilities reveal themselves, particularly – we hope – through people sharing their discoveries and insights on our discussion forum! It will probably also change shape as our shared understating of music making with corpora develops,
