Pure data introductory workshop

This workshop is a basic introduction to object-oriented programming starting from the primary libraries of data control, automation and the manipulation and processing of sound matter with Pure Data.

Until 20 May 2016

Pure Data 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.

Miller Puckette developed it in the 1990s for the creation of interactive computer music and multimedia works. Although Puckette is the principal author of the software, Pd is an open source project and has a large developer base working on new extensions to the program. It has a lot of flexibility for interaction with a wide variety of media, protocols and interfaces.
