I am giving this workshop at Hangar in Barcelona in a week and some.   
There is a cap of 15 people to keep it workable, but there are still  
a couple spots open.


30 of june 2008 - 4 of july 17h-21h
(possibility of working in the space the whole day if needed)

participation : 20 euros
inscription : activitats at hangar.org (with letter of motivation)

This workshop will focus on building instruments using Pd with  
Arduino and game-controllers to control sound, video, and graphics in  
real time. It will cover getting data into Pd, turning that data into  
a usable form, then mapping the data to build engaging interactions  
and interesting performances. Participants will learn how to get data  
from the real world, process the data to eliminate noise and ignore  
unimportant details, then create a data flow that gives interesting  
control over media. If time permits, force and vibration feedback  
will be introduced.

The workshop is for beginners as well as experienced users, but some  
experience with Pd is strongly encouraged. Bring in game controllers,  
tablets, mice, etc. or an Arduino with sensors. You can use your own  
laptop, the workshop will be preceded with a short installation help  
session. This course will prepare you for further work in audio,  
video, graphics or electronics. It will be project based, so bring a  
project idea to work on. By the end of the workshop, you should have  
something that works.
