    Dear all
    The [Fluid Corpus Manipulation]( project is on some of y'all's radar, because Cycling posted a few good words about it last year. To make a long story short, we have various machine listening and learning tools to help tackle programmatically sound bank mining in Max and SuperCollider (and Pd in progress) on MacOS, Windows and Linux with all the code open source...
    As part of the project design, we commissioned works to get first users feedback on interface decisions and directions and many other things. Rodrigo Constanzo, an active member of this forum, was part of the first cohort (you can see who else was on the roster [here](
    Now, in early July we have 8 more pieces coming. We asked all composers to tell us how they (ab)used the tools. You can follow the saga [here]( and I'll post one per week, which leads us to the gigs.
    I hope you enjoy!

      Dear all Once again, as we with the first tools, we asked the artists commissioned to work with the full pre-release toolbox to present in detail how they integrated it into their creative workflow. All the premieres will be at the Dialogues...
      Gigs are live on the 7th-8th-9th of July, and 2 keynotes on the 10th. I’ll post about them when I have the official link from the festival.
      I hope you enjoy! I’ve certainly been inspired by them!
