digital musical collaboration
To: <community at nime.org>

Dear NIME community,

We are excited to announce the 1.0 release of Bf-Pd, a library for
spontaneous collaboration between digital instruments. Bf-Pd is a set of
abstractions for PureData (Pd) which enables communication and cooperation
between digital instruments. Bf-Pd allows musicians to share parameter
control data between instruments on the same local area network. In other
words, Bf-Pd makes it easier to have spontaneous jam sessions! Bf-Pd
consists of a set of Pd objects that can be easily integrated into an
existing or new instrument, and it provides a “collaboration window” from
which musicians can easily view each others’ activities and share control
of instrument parameters and other musical data.

Bf-Pd can be downloaded at https://gitlab.cristal.univ-lille.fr/boeuf/bf-pd
or installed with Deken. Bf-Pd comes with example instruments and
documentation accessible from both the downloaded repository (in the 'doc
folder') or online at

Bf-Pd has been developed as part of the BOEUF project led by Florent
Berthaut at Université de Lille and Luke Dahl at University of Virginia.
More information on the project, including publications and demo videos can
be found at https://bf-collab.net

We hope you find Bf-Pd useful in your collaborative music making, and we
look forward to hearing the music you make!

Flo & Luke
