Miller Puckette, University of California at San Diego, USA

Pure Data (Pd), available for Mac, Windows, and linux, offers
real-time audio processing and synthesis, a Max-like GUI, and a very
high degree of integration between control, audio, video, and I/O
operations, in an extremely light package. This workshop, intended for
people familiar with software synthesis but not assuming any
particular technological background, will show what Pd is like and how
to get started with it. Time permitting, the more shown.

Miller Puckette was the top scorer in the 1979-1980 William Lowell Putnam
Mathematics competition and was awarded Putnam and NSF fellowships to
study mathematics at MIT and Harvard, where he finished his Ph.D. in
1986 under Andrew Gleason. From 1979 through 1986 Puckette also
studied computer music with Barry Vercoe at the MIT Media Lab. He then
joined IRCAM in Paris, where he wrote the Max graphic programming
language, which has become the lingua franca of live computer music.
In 1994 Puckette joined UCSD where he is now professor of music and
associate director of the Center for Research in Computing and the
Arts. Puckette's research interests include human-machine interaction
strategies and real-time audio and video processing.
