Een workshop Pure Data, een Open Source toepassing:
PureData (or PD) is a fairly easy to learn graphical programming language for the creation of interactive computer music and multimedia works. This workshop is an opportunity for anyone to learn how to process and organize sounds, how to map and program for physical interaction, for video processing and and for networking possibilities with Pure Data. In PureData functions or objects are patched together in a graphical environment which models the flow of data. Participants will learn the basics of using PD, the basics of sound synthetization and they will build their own PureData sound- video or control patches. PureData is a free, open source software tool.
Andy J. Farnell a.k.a. Obiwannabe is a composer, open source software developer and computer scientist from the UK. Andy has produced many works for the BBC, film and game projects and worked with some well known bands as well.
Furthermore Kostya Leonenko, who studied sonology at the Koninklijk Conservatorium in Den Haag, will assist participants making their projects.
This workshop is intended for nerds, musicians, artists, programmers and designers. We'll start from scratch, so programming skills will not be required, but will come in handy of course. Participants will need some technical affinity.
