DESCRIPTION While many excellent tools exist for digital image creation and editing, similar tools for manipulating sound with precise timing and control are few and far between. ChucK, an audio-centric programming language, opens new vistas for sound artistry. The ChucK language provides precise high-level control over time, audio computation, and user interface elements like track pads and joysticks. Because ChucK uses the vocabulary of sound, it's easy to learn even for artists with little or no exposure to computer programming. Programming for Musicians and Digital Artists offers a complete introduction to programming in the open source music language ChucK. It's an example driven easy-to-follow book, that allows readers to create meaningful and rewarding digital compositions and "instruments" that make sound and music in direct response to program logic, scores, gestures, and other systems connected via MIDI or the network. RETAIL SELLING POINTS Written by the creators and early architects of ChucK Learn ChucK and digital music creation side-by-side Example-driven easy-to-follow guide AUDIENCE Because this book teaches both digital sound control and the ChucK programming language, no experience with computer programming is required. It helps to be familiar with the basic concepts and vocabulary of sound and music. ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY ChucK is a powerful language with a vibrant and growing user community. A relatively new (early 2000's) programming language, it's designed specifically for real-time control and synthesis of sound, music, and other temporal types of digital art. ChucK is used by millions of users throughout the world, and is the backbone of dozens of academic programs and laptop orchestras.
