The Sampo academy is aimed at musicians who wish to transcend the sound boundaries of their instrument with the Sampo. It offers a chance to discover the Sampo during a weekend of intensive training, to transform one's instrument into an augmented one, and to introduce oneself to mixed music.
The academy also welcomes composers, who have the possibility to write a short piece to work together with the performers during the academy.
Intended for performers of any instrument, the Sampo is an extension whose purpose is to widen the sound field of an acoustic instrument in any place and in complete autonomy. It is a practical tool for playing mixed music, whether it be triggering sound files or processing the instrument sound in real-time. For more information and videos, please visit www.sampo.fr.
During the Sampo academy, participants will acquire (better) knowledge of mixed music and augmented instruments, of the specificities of performing mixed music, and of different kinds of works.
The academy takes place between Thursday 6 and Monday 10 May 2021, during the Art & Science Days festival in Saint-Etienne, France.
