A two weeks boot camp dedicated to free software tools for audio-visual
art and performance.
Pure Data is a free and open source real-time graphical programming
environment used by artists to create a range of visual arts, theatre,
dance, audio, installation, performance and media art works.
Pure Data is ideal for those looking to integrate technology into their
work for the first time, or advanced media artists looking to explore
new tools and new ways to combine them in a unified environment. It is
easy to use Pure Data to create interactive environments, link
animations and sound, control hardware and electronics, stream audio,
generate real time visuals and develop interfaces for other programs.
In this intensive two week course, participants will learn Pure Data
from scratch and explore in detail some of its most exciting extensions.
Participants will discover real time sound design, audiovisual
techniques, physical modelling and pure:dyne, a specialised version of
Linux operating system for live audio-visual work. All software used is
available for free, if you bring your own computer you can have copies
installed on it. A number of pre-installed computers will also be
available for use in the workshop.
The software is available for Linux, Mac OSX and Windows operating
systems. Support on installing and using the software for Linux and OSX
users will be available, but please note we cannot provide support for
Windows users in this workshop.
