Pure Data and sound creation workshop

1st to 5th december 2014

Pure Data (or Pd) is a graphical programming language developed by Miller Puckette during the 1990s for the creation of interactive computer music and multimedia works. It currently has a very large community of users and developers around the world.

It is an open source, cross-platform (linux, osx, windows) program, specially designed to facilitate the manipulation of sound, video, image and data in real time, as well as to develop interactive and/or generative projects.

This workshop will focus on the use of Pure Data for sound creation. Synthesis, sound spatialisation (vbap, ambisonics), reactive audio and algorithmic and generative processes applied to musical composition.
