I wanted to update everyone with links to RSVP for the Pd Weekend events
coming up in L.A. next month.
These events are being sponsored by New Blankets (many thanks to Joe Deken)
and CRASH Space. We are very excited about the line up - there are four
great workshops, plus a concert and a patching circle. All these events
are good for any experience level. So if you're in the Los Angeles area
that weekend, please take a look at the CRASH Space blog (
http://blog.crashspace.org/2013/10/pd-weekend-2013/) or the Eventbrite
Saturday, November 16th
Pure Data + Raspberry Pi: The Adventure Continues - Miller Puckette will
show how to get Pd up and running on the Raspberry Pi, and show what you
can do with it. For those without a Raspberry Pi, there is a separate
ticket for a RPi kit. https://www.eventbrite.com/event/8812276757
DIY Live Sampling Microphone Build & Slice//Jockey - Katja Vetter will show
how to build an inexpensive but quality DIY microphone suitable for use as
part of a live sampling setup, and will show how to use it with
Slice//Jockey (and of course other Pd patches, Max/MSP, or whatever).
Laptop Orchestrating With Your Friends - Ico Bukvic will teach an
introduction to Pd, plus Pd-L2ork and it's K-12 education module. He will
cover alternative input devices, laptop scoring and performance strategies
and we will have a collaborative performance.
Your Computer, Your Creativity - Jonathan Wilkes will cover how to use your
computer in new and creative ways using Pure Data.
Then, Saturday night, we have a FREE concert (a $5 donation at the door is
suggested to cover the costs of putting on Pd Weekend) with our special
guest instructors, plus local musicians covering a wide range of musical
styles, from live sampling to circuit bending to chiptunes to
* Joe Newlin
* Jim Bumgardner
* Andy Ben
* Jeff Boynton
* Timon Marmex
* Raymond Weitekamp
We do request that you RSVP for this event if possible, though it is FREE:
Finally, on Sunday, November 17th, we will be having a very special
patching circle with Miller and our special guests, plus others. We're
still planning, but Miller will show what's new with Pd 0.45. This is also
FREE and open to everyone. We do request you RVSP for the patching circle
if possible, though (again) it is FREE:
All these events will be taking place at the STAR Prep Academy at 10101
Jefferson Blvd. in Culver City. They are graciously providing
accommodations so that these events can be larger than what we could hold
at CRASH Space.
If you have any questions, feel free to post to the list, or e-mail me (
theron.trowbridge at gmail.com) or Joe (newblankets at newblankets.org) directly.
