Featured on April 3rd!
Pure Data free workshop (early hours 2 hours starting 6:30!) + meet-up

this week, a semi-impromptu self organizing Pure Data meetup. We will be
discussing anything and everything Pure Data related. Max/MSP users who are
curious about PD but havent played around are welcome. Install fest, patching
tips, programming techniques, PDP, Gem!

  "PD (aka Pure Data) is a real-time graphical programming environment for
audio, video, and graphical processing. It is the third major branch of the
family of patcher programming languages known as Max (Max/FTS, ISPW Max,
Max/MSP, jMax, etc.) originally developed by Miller Puckette and company at
IRCAM. The core of Pd is written and maintained by Miller Puckette and includes
the work of many developers, making the whole package very much a community

  Pd was created to explore ideas of how to further refine the Max paradigm with
the core ideas of allowing data to be treated in a more open-ended way and
opening it up to applications outside of audio and MIDI, such as graphics and

  Pd is free software and can be downloaded either as an OS-specific package,
source package, or directly from CVS. Pd was written to be multi-platform and
therefore is quite portable; versions exist for Win32, IRIX, GNU/Linux, BSD,
and MacOS X running on anything from a PocketPC to an old Mac to a brand new
PC. It is possible to write externals and patches that work with Max/MSP and Pd
using flext and cyclone."

and as always, openjam is happening after the featured workshop (latter part
will include jamming with PD people).
 please come with your instruments, equipment, and/or simply yourself to join in
&/or hang out!

 All styles of audio &/or visuals are welcome!!
