We are in the process of finalizing our plans for the pd-LAunch week
(4/25-4/30) in Los Angeles and are pleased to announce that on Thursday,
April 28th at 7:30 pm, Hans-Christoph Steiner will be teaching a workshop at
CRASHspace on using Pure Data for interactive audio creation.

Starting with Realtime Audio/Video Interaction

Pd provides a wide range of tools for tracking and extracting information
from audio in realtime.  Once in Pd, we can use the audio to control sound
generation, effect, video, camera processing, etc. The combination of audio
processing and digital media provide myriad opportunities for creating
interactions. This workshop will introduce how to create real-time
interaction in the physical world with sound and light. Pd (aka Pure Data)
will be introduced as a simple programming environment for real-time
interaction.  This workshop will be a combination of short lectures,
hands-on instruction, and unstructured time to work on learning and
exploring with support of the instructor. While Pd is fairly easy to learn
and designed for artists, familiarity with basic computer programming will
be very beneficial. You will be able to apply the concepts learned in this
course to a wide range of programming environments that can receive data via
OSC messages or a network socket, such as Arduino, Flash, Processing, etc.

Students are also encouraged to bring additional hardware and/or tools they
are interested in working with, as long as they are technically
self-sufficient with them.  Bring MIDI equipment, projectors, etc. to
experiment with realtime control. Bring an Arduino with Firmata plus servos
or motor controllers to experiment with motion. Or accelerometers, rotary
sensors; flex sensors, etc. to experiment with sensing motion.

Students will need a laptop with Pd-extended installed and working (download
for free from http://puredata.info) - it is available for Linux, Mac OS X,
and Windows.  The laptop needs to have a microphone and speakers.

Space is limited.  Cost is $60.  Sign up in the CRASHspace store:

CRASHspace is located at 10526 Venice Blvd, Culver City CA 90232.
