DorkbotPDX is proud to announce a unique *free* workshop geared at 
teaching sound synthesis fundamentals as explored and demonstrated 
through Pure Data (PD).

Sunday, May 29th, 2011 - 1-5pm PST
@ Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA), room 205
1241 Northwest Johnson Street
Portland, OR 97209-3023

Fascinated by orgies of towering analog synthesizers from the 60s? 
Mesmerized by how computers can generate sound that offends and elates? 
  In this casual yet intense session, we will cover the basics of audio 
signal theory while exploring the common techniques and tricks used by 
sound designers and synth builders.

Participants should bring:

[*] A mac/linux/win laptop with a functioning Pure data install.
(This is free and open-source software!)
Download either 'Vanilla' or 'Pd-extended' here:

[*] A basic/rudimentary knowledge of Pd. (Not 100% required - but at 
least a very basic understanding of what Pd is will help)

[*] Headphones

[*] An eagerness to learn, develop, and share!

The synthesis workshop is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC Seating is limited 
to 30 (first-come, first serve)
