from 45.00

New Media: Pure Data Programming- Two Day Workshop
Dates: Saturday, Aug 5, 3pm-6pm & Sunday, Aug 6, 3pm-6pm
Location: 817 W. Davis Street #110
Instructor: Martin Back
This workshop is geared towards beginners.

Participation Requirements:  Laptop computer preferably running Macintosh or Windows operating system.  A pair of headphones that are not ear-buds.

Pure Data is a free and open source programming environment for working with multimedia.  Pure Data (or Pd for short) enables musicians, visual artists, researchers, performers, composers and designers to create custom software applications without writing lines of code. Users create functions by connecting visual boxes, called objects with virtual patch cables. Each object performs a particular task, which ranges from simple mathematical operations to higher level audio or video processes. PD can be used to generate 2D and 3D video, generate and process digital audio, interface with sensors, MIDI devices and other external hardware.  

In this workshop, participants will learn the fundamentals of programming in PD for working with data, sound, and video.  This workshop will assume participants have no experience with PD and will cover information on proper installation of the software, the addition of external libraries, and proper workflow with regards to saving files and associated media.  Participants will also learn how to take advantage of Pure Data’s modular nature.  This will include how to create one’s own custom code-objects and the development of simple graphical user interfaces.  In addition, the workshop will provide participants with information on the history of electronic and computer music, the mechanics of digital audio, the history of video art and related contemporary art forms.  At the end of the workshop, participants will leave with several PD patches which generate sonic and visual art that can subsequently be modified to suit their own artistic needs.
