 SuperCollider 3 is a software environment for sound synthesis,
 performance, and live coding..  It has an extensive library of
 hundreds of unit generators and is well suited to projects that
 require the dynamic creation of multiple synthesis patches or
 high level compositional abstractions.  Supercollider is "free"
 software distributed under the Gnu Public License and is
 available at .  While
 SuperCollider is constantly evolving through a particularly
 active developer and user community a stable version (3.2)
 is available that serves as the reference version for a book that
 is forthcoming from MIT press.

 SuperCollider 3 separates synthesis from control into separate
 applications: a synthesis server and an object oriented
 programming language. This creates a very open and adaptable
 environment.  For example, one copy of the language to control
 multiple servers, providing a simple way to take advantage of the
 multi-processing capabilities of current computers.  It is also
 possible for multiple performers to share a single server or to
 play material on one another's machines. The synthesis server can
 be controlled by any application that supports the OSC protocol,
 such as Java or Max/MSP (see

 Teacher Bio:

 Dan St. Clair makes sound installations and performances that
 playfully reconsider our daily listening habits. He has exhibited
 in public spaces and galleries in Berlin, Vienna, Seoul,
 Shanghai, and across the USA. His piece Call Notes (2006) uses
 SuperCollider in conjunction with solar-powered digital circuitry
 to synthesize the sound of birds singing popular melodies. Dan
 graduated from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Sound
 Department in 2006, and from Wesleyan University in 2004. He has
 studied with Nic Collins, Mary Jane Jacob, Ron Kuivila, and Anne
