You've got Pluggability. Pure Data in the Summer.

29-31 August, 2008
xxxxx/pickledfeet, Berlin
Cost: 60 EUR (with HID sensor board), 50 EUR (without)

Pure Data (Pd) presents the ultimate, free software environment for
sheer audio, video and hardware pluggability, patching and piping. Pd
provides the basis for all manner of audiovisual performance and
trans-media installation, as well as satisfying the artistic quest for
heady experimentation and improvisation. Yet few artists take the time
to master a solid foundation in this graphical programming

The three day You've got pluggability workshop aims to provide a firm
grounding and clear overview of the varied possibilities and paths
offered by Pure Data. The first day will introduce Pd and quickly move
on to how to create patches which create sounds and noises. The second
day will look further at sound, particularly how to work with sampled
audio, and will introduce the GEM library for working with live and
recorded video. The third day will start with a look at the HID (Human
Interface Device) system for getting sensor input into Pd, and venture
into to using this input to control the audio and video patches which
the participants have already created. No previous experience is
necessary to take this workshop.

This PD workshop will be roughly based on the Pure Data FLOSS Manual,
written by Derek Holzer, Luka Princic, Adam Hyde and contributors from
the PD community: http://flossmanuals.net/puredata

Participants should bring their own laptop running GNU/Linux, Mac OS X or
Windows, and with Pure Data Extended installed from:

They are also encouraged to bring their own ideas, sensors, USB game
controllers, MIDI devices, microphones and video cameras. There will
be an opportunity to buy the inexpensive xxxxx-HID sensor input board
produced at Pickled Feet: http://1010.co.uk/avrhid.html

Limited places! Please register before 24 August at: m at 1010.co.uk

---About the Teachers

Derek Holzer [USA 1972] began working with Pure Data in 2001. Since
then, he has taught and performed with the program across Europe,
North America, Brazil and New Zealand. His work focuses on field
recording, networked collaboration strategies, experiments in
improvisational sound and the use of free software such as Pd. He is
currently writing a beginner's manual for Pure
Data. http://www.umatic.nl/info_derek.html

Martin Howse operates within the fields of discourse, speculative
hardware (environmental data in open physical systems), code (an
examination of layers of abstraction), free software and the
situational (performances and interventions). http://1010.co.uk
