What could sound do? Even the smallest action can create a whole world of tunes! Check out our special guest from Japan, Mamoru’s workshop on WSK.fm on Friday at 15:00 pm! His recent works evoke the possibilities of creating sense of value out of the neglected things in pre-existed economical sense by sound, which is also immaterial and non‒economical in essence.

Only on WSK.fm

The Southeast Asia premiere of Leviathan in Shangri-La, Makati, this coming Friday 19:30 pm.
An interestingly filmed documentary that suggests a sensory experience rather than just capturing the conventionally “beautiful” images of the life in the sea. If you wish to watch a film that has a conventional narration do not watch this film festival hit. 
Organized by Shang Cineplex, Fete dela WSK, Ambafrance Manille in cooperation with Hors Pistes Tokyo( オール・ピスト東京 ) and with the help of Peliculas Los Otros
Limited seats. Email fetedelawsk@gmail.com to be added to the official guestlist. First-come, first-serve only.
Fete del WSK 2013 kicked off with an amazing lineup of Japanese sound artist Tetsuya Umeda, the Philippines’ own Elemento and Bent Lynchpin. The event went great in a unique venue of old Manila, where history meets the modern music.
Not too much should be said in words, you must bring your ears to taste the excitement. Including workshops, concerts, screenings, radio launch, special programs and many others, please check: www.wsknow.com

WHEN: July 5-12 (M-F 6pm onwards, WEEKENDS 1.30pm onwards)
WHERE: TERMINAL GARDEN, 566 Shaw Blvd. Mandaluyong City
This 8 day workshop will introduce coding to artists who want to incorporate programming into their work, starting with basic elements of the Processing language and moving into topics including 3d modeling, using peripheral devices like the Kinect and Arduino, data visualization, computer vision/sensors & interactivity, and generative art inspired from nature, statistics, biology, and computer science. 
We will also work on projection mapping techniques, and filmmakers and visual artists are invited to bring content and a concept, and we will help set up the tech for installing it.
The programming will be done in Processing but the concepts are applicable to other languages and tools.
On the last day, we shall have an opportunity to showcase what we’ve learned on the 13th JUL by providing visuals and projection mapping during an electronic music concert at B-SIDE! [more info TBA]
This course is part of 2013 BEDROOMLAB workshop series.
Requirements: Bring a computer with processing installed — you can download a free copy from http://www.processing.org. 
(Prior programming experience not required!)
Fee: 1,500 PHP (for the whole week!) 
15 Slots available.

About the workshop lecturer:

I don’t know how to program, is it necessary for this workshop? 
-No! We shall be focusing on concepts and streamlining the workshop lessons to each partipant’s skill and interest. 
Say you’re a filmmaker, a theater art director, or a motion graphics artist and want to learn how to do video mapping or use computer tracking technology using Kinect. You don’t need to learn your programming basics 101, just come on over and we’ll help you set-up your project. We anticipate that the workshop participants vary, some would be more skilled in programming, others won’t. Don’t worry, we’ll guide you to let you get the most out of this workshop. Having some programming background is useful, but not necessary for this workshop.
Are you sure it’s only 1,500 PHP? 
-Yes! We’re not in it for the money, we want to cultivate a community of first-time creative coders and artists. FACT: this is the only 8-day workshop on generative art (or Processing language) offered in the Philippines and only for 1,500 PHP!
Will there be assignments during the workshop? 
- Most of the assignments we’ll give you would probably just links to videos and reading material. We want to focus on getting our hands dirty during the workshop session itself! 
What if I miss one day of the workshop? 
- The reason why we are trying to limit the workshop participants to a maximum of 15 people is because we want our lessons to be tailored specifically to each participant. Say, you miss one day, no need to worry, we’ll catch up with what was the lesson you previously attended. Of course you will make the most out of the workshop if you participate on all 8 days. 
I want to learn how to use kinect and arduino for interactive projects but I don’t own one, should I buy?
- Buying is entirely up to you, but completely unnecessary. We have 2 arduinos, a kinect, and a bunch of other sensors that we can use during the workshop. 
Is there a dress code for the workshop? Is this like going to school? 
- Nonsense! The workshop is a rare workshop that is combines both informal and intensive! Come as you are, no need to be proper, just be yourself. We envision the workshop environment to be informal, fun, and easy. We don’t serve refreshments, but there is a bar just outside the venue. If you prefer to bring your own. BYOB to share!
