[PD] ultrasound 2004 pd workshops in leeds

Wed Nov 10 11:20:31 CET 2004
The information is not exactly right. They sent it a too early when the
content were still not defined totally and I guess puts too much stress
on the PD part of it.
The workshop will be part of Ultrasound festival www.ultrasound.ws in
Huddersfield . Its is hosted by the Digital Reseach Unit (link between
the university and the Media Center) and it will be in Huddersfield and
not in Leeds (!).
There will be 3 days of workshop where different open source (not all of
them but the mayority) multimedia/sound/graphic tools will be introduced.
It will be conducted by ixi people but it will actually have a lot of
other interesting people adding their expertise.
As far as i know this would be a description of what should happen there:
ixi will introduce basic PD, SC and basics of programming in Python +
overview of graphics in Python (PyOpenGL and Pygame-PySDL)
Aymeric Mansoux will introduce more PD + externals such as GEM and PDP/PiDiP
on top of this there would be short addtions by Andy Gracie, who will
talk about controlling Teleo with MAX/MSP (this is the non opensource
bit) and Steve Symons, who will talk about his MUIO USB system.
We will also talk about interfaces for music making and discuss ideas
and concepts, and show examples trying to explore and brainstorm ideas
and possibilites that this technologies offer us, and how to take
advantage of them for our artistic work.
As you can see plenty of stuff for 3 days, maybe too much, but the aim
is to give and overview and share ideas and knowledge.
Then over the weekend there is the Ultrasound festival which is very
cozy and interesting.

> CONFIRMED SO FAR:
> ULTRASOUND / LIVE / Stephan Mathieu [Germany] /
> "While the archetypal application of laptop DSP
> synthesis ends up tainted by antiseptic, clinical
> or cold tones, Mathieu manages to wrap all of
> his digital pixelations in a dreamy, warmly
> crackling, and wholly inviting atmosphere, not
> unlike the beloved Aphex Twin album 'Selected
> Ambient Works Vol II.'(â?¦)Mathieu's work ranks way
> up at the top of the increasingly prolific
> laptop community alongside Fennesz, Carsten Nicolai,
> and Stilluppsteypa."
> Jim Haynes in Aquarius Records Review, Los Angeles
> Since 1999 Stephan has released fifteen albums on
> labels around the globe. In 2002 British magazine
> 'The Wire' voted 'frequencyLib' among the 10 best
> electronic music releases of the year.

> ULTRASOUND / LIVE / Farmersmanual [Austria] /
> "Formed in Vienna in the mid 90s, the Farmersmanual
> collective represents media art at its most
> anarchistic. While being best known for their
> recordings, in recent years the group have shifted
> their emphasis towards extensive live performances,
> in which imaginative computer animation,
> synchronised with 'chaos-particle-accelerating'
> music, and the overall ambience of uncontrollable
> technology form a seamless whole."
> The Farmersmanual set will be a live collaboration
> between Huddersfield and Berlin via the internet.

> ULTRASOUND / LIVE / Mileece [UK/CANADA] /
> Her compositions are inspired by formations in
> nature: the rotating progression of sparse then
> condensed spouts of growth in plants, the changing
> hues and intensities of light, the sudden changing
> gusts to wisps of the wind, the unfathomably
> intricate structures of snow flakes, the random
> patterns of raindrops as they fall to ground.

> ULTRASOUND / LIVE / TOPLAP [UK/International] /
> TOPLAP is the Temporary Organisation for the
> Promotion of Live Algorithm Programming, set up
> to explore the application of live programming to
> composition and performance. TOPLAP advocates
> treating algorithms as live artistic material,
> allowing them to be written and manipulated
> while they create music or video, perhaps in
> front of an audience.
> + Website: www.toplap.org
> ULTRASOUND / LIVE / SI-CUT.DB [UK] /
> Douglas Benford has collaborated with Scanner,
> Rechenzentrum, Janek Schaefer, Iris Garrelfs,
> Stephan Mathieu, Benge (as Tennis), and Tonne.
> Ranging from microsound, electronica and dub,
> Benford has released music on Fallt, Bip hop,
> BackGround, Highpoint Lowlife and 12K.
> He has played Ars Electronica, Tate Modern,
> Nokialab and Transmediale & Sintesi festivals,

> ULTRASOUND DJs / Alku [Spain] /
> Alku is an artistic collective from Barcelona,
> working in the fields of computer music and
> digital arts; they performed at Ultrasound in
> 2002, as Evol.
> Alku return this year with an eclectic DJ set.

> ULTRASOUND / INSTALLATION / rand()%lab /
> by Tom Betts and Joe Gilmore.
> rand()% is commissioned by Media Centre Network.
> rand()%lab is a presentation by the generative
> net.radio station, rand()%, applied to a gallery
> context. The installation uses the laboratory as
> a metaphor for research and investigation into
> random number generation and sound. The exhibition
> will feature new audio works by rand()% artists
> Tom Betts, Joe Gilmore, Alku, James Brouwer
> and Mileece, installed for the first time in a
> physical location.
> Various experiments will be presented: the
> results of ongoing investigations into quantum
> random numbers, mutant Unix code and bio-acoustic
> research. By using sensor technologies and
> software agents to take signal feeds from plants,
> light, the quantum decay of beta particles, lemons,
> and data packet sniffing from information systems,
> new audio experiments are created.
> The artists and their collaborators will evolve
> the experiments and processes over the two month
> duration of the exhibition.
> Visitors will be able to listen to the rand()%
> live stream via headphone listening posts, and
> browse exisiting rand()% works which have a
> previously unseen accompanying visual element,
> including works by rand()% collaborators:
> Lia + Miguel Carvalhais [LMLB03]
> SteinbrÃ¼chel / Brusa [-00:dedaih]
> Eude [Aluminia......5080 m/s]
> Thor and Runar Magnusson [Same, Same but Different]

> Who is it for?
> Anyone can attend this workshop, but it will be
> of special interest to new media artists,
> musicians, creative industries practitioners,

> What is Pure Data?
> Pure Data or 'PD' is an open source programming
> environment for multimedia development. It is
> used for real-time processing of data, particularly
> in sound related works, and can be extended through
> the use of a range of 'externals' or software
> libraries to include real-time video and openGL
> Pure Data runs on Linux, OS X, and Windows.
> This workshop presents:
> + GEM [graphics environment for multimedia]
> The PD external for openGL graphics processing
> and other externals for real-time video works.
> + Physical Computing Technologies
> Interfacing PD to serial controls from a
> + Introduction to the Python Programming Language
> Its integration with PD, and general use in
> multimedia audio/visual processing software.
