[PD] Beginners question

I started looking at PD and GEM today because I have heard that it might be
suitable as a live video effect/mix/styling tool. What I intend to do is to
use PD and GEM to create visuals that are (somewhat/somehow)
synchronized/responsive to audio input. I'm running PD and GEM on both
Windows and Linux. However, the PD enviroinment is far from intuitive, and I
can't seem to get anything out of it that even comes close to what I intend
to do with it. I am wondering if there are people who use it as such (sort
of a video/visual artist/jockey kinda thing), and was hoping that  someone
could point me in the right direction here. I have quite some experience
with computers but this programming enviroinment is not exactly something i
can just jump into :)

Thanks for any help. It's greatly appreciated.
