About Sohrab Motabar:

Sohrab Motabar (1984) is a composer from Tehran. His music resonates like a maze for the listener regarding states of suspension and dazzled motion. He composes algorithms, chaotic functions, and non-standard synthesized sounds as a way to give rise to obscured dimensions and experimental modes of perceiving and listening. In 2018 he graduated from the Institute of Sonology. Since then, he has been teaching, giving workshops, and developing his research further. In addition, he also actively collaborates in selected projects with artists and other musicians.

Workshop Outline: 

In this workshop, we will learn about the fundamentals of computer programming in a visual context and learn to work with Processing (a programming language).
Since Processing is designed to be as simple as possible for beginners, it is an excellent choice to start creating visual pieces using computer coding.
This course is designed for those who have no background in this area. At the end of the workshop, the participants are expected to have completed a generative or interactive work.
The fifth session of the workshop is assigned for the presentation of the participants’ works.
