CwithS – Composing with Sounds


»Composing with Sounds« is an intuitive music processing software developed as part of a EU project by four European partner institutions from 2011 to 2013: the Music, Technology and Innovation Research Centre at the De Montfort University Leicester (UK), the Institut National de L’Audiovisuel Paris (F), Norsk Senter for Teknologi i Musikk og Kunst Oslo (Nor) and the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics Karlsruhe (D).

Alongside the development of the software for the use in schools, workshops for teachers, educationalists and school students were also offered with the aim of familiarizing users with the program. Furthermore, composition contracts were awarded to composers from each of the participating countries who elaborated electro-acoustic pieces together with students and by means of »Composing with Sounds«.
The project’s objective is to introduce young people to electronic music, to strengthen trans-European exchange, to develop within the European network software capable of being used for teaching purposes and, finally, to create new works of art.
