Level: Some experience of norns required

Flora is an L-systems sequencer and bandpass-filtered sawtooth engine for monome norns. In this workshop you will learn how L-system algorithms are used to produce musical sequences while exploring the script’s UI and features.

By the end of the first workshop, you will be able to:

  • Navigate the Flora UI and parameters menus to build and perform your own compositions

  • Create dynamically shaped, multinodal envelopes to modulate Flora’s bandpass-filtered sawtooth engine

  • Build generative polyrhythms and delays into your compositions

  • Use crow and/or midi-enabled controllers and synthesizers to play Flora

Session study topics:

  • Sequencing with L-system algorithms

  • Physical modeling synthesis with bandpass filters

  • Generate multi-nodal envelope 

  • Norns integration with midi and/or crow

Requirements

  • A computer and internet connection

  • A norns device with Flora installed

  • Optional: A midi-enabled controller and/or synthesizer
