A brief history of computer music

With Anders Norås


30. September.

Time: 14:00 - 15:00



Computer programmed music has come a long way since the CSIR Mark 1 played a scratchy Colonel Bogie back in the early 1950s. In this talk, we'll go on a journey through the history of music made with code. We'll meet the pioneers who invented computer music, visit classic video game soundtracks, learn how computer musicians made big sounds with tiny tech, how algorithms create never-ending soundtracks and the huge impact computer music has had on popular culture. Expect lots of nostalgia, vintage code on vintage computers, and a musical experience of epic proportions.

Originally educated in arts and design, Anders has spent the last twenty years writing code. He has given numerous talks and keynotes at conferences such as JavaZone, NDC, J-Fall, Øredev, and many more. Anders is known for his energetic and highly engaging presentations. He has given 100+ conference talks to a variety of audiences including media, design, and hardcore computer science.
