Stanislav Glazov

Instructor for TouchDesigner integration




For more than 20 years, he has worked in light and visual art, seeking innovative opportunities where art and technology intersect. His installations and AV performances explore themes such as inner and social freedom, consciousness, identity, and loneliness in the modern world, using high-tech techniques.

Driven by his desire to create unforgettable experiences that inspire, he takes an individualized approach to each work, creating unique algorithms and synchronizing sound with visuals and digital shapes. He is also known for producing music with modular synthesizers and analog devices, influenced by industrial music, which combines noise, disharmony, and shamanism to take listeners on an intense emotional journey.

In 2013, he created his own generative design studio Licht.Pfad.

Creation of AV Performances in partnership with Dasha Rush, Robert Lippok

Performances at all the iconic festivals of the planet: Berlin Atonal, Mutek Montreal, Ars Electronica Linz, Unsound Festival in Krakow, Raster-Noton night in Berghain, Barbican London, Resonance Festival in Tokyo, Mira Festival Barcelona, L.E.V. Festival, Light Festival Lyon

All practical topics have corresponding tasks to complete as homeworks. Most of them require to repeat the actions from the lectures on your own supply.We recommend to execute them even if everything is clear in theory - to ensure that you won’t face unexpected issues in your future work.
During final week you will have to develop and complete your own project (with our assistance) as a kind of exam of the obtained knowledge.

10-12 hours per week should be sufficient to master necessary concepts and skills. You may want to invest more time for more exhaustve explorations though. Remember, the course program is somewhat open-ended: nearly all topics are not limited in scope, and have lots of options for extra developments.
