xxxxx workshop_10_11 Berlin
A (more-or-less) weekly series of constructivist workshops emphasising
making and connection within the field of the existent.
28th April: ap/UNIX process: dd, cat, FIFO, pipes for PD, jekyll,
i_am, leaks with ap/xxxxx
5th May: Crouching Table, Hidden Pointer [Pure Data for soundfiles and
live sampling] with Derek Holzer
May/June projected: GNU Emacs, television transmission, the C
programming language, spectral RF reception and white noise,
rapid-prototyping-realtime-3D, ATmega8 microcontrollers a la Arduino,
... or contact if you're interested in leading a related workshop.
28th April 2PM. ap/UNIX process: dd, cat, FIFO, pipes for PD, jekyll,
i_am, leaks with ap/xxxxx
An artistic exploration of the UNIX philosophy chaining small software
artefacts together with code and data pipes to form new, active noise
structures. The roster of core programs such as dd and cat with pipe
symbols at the commandline will exploited for audio and visual
programming alongside ap/xxxxx custom code such as jekyll, i_am, leaks
and others within a workshop engaging promiscuous noise generation.
RSVP m at 1010.co.uk with interest as places are very limited
Please bring a GNU/Linux system or any PC-based desktop or laptop (no
PowerPC, Intel Mac only) for live-CD misuse courtesy of pure:dyne:
Course fee: 10 euros
5th May 2PM. Crouching Table, Hidden Pointer [Pure Data for soundfiles
and live sampling] with Derek Holzer
The Shaolin Temple secret for manipulating recorded sound in Pure Data
lies in the arcane arts of the Table. Seekers of enlightenment will be
shown how to load soundfiles from the harddrive into tables, or capture
live audio from the microphone, so that these sounds can be looped,
stretched, pitchshifted, granulated and mangled. The Way is a long and
dangerous one, and some basic understanding of PD is recommended, but
some of you will triumph!
Time will also be set aside for responding to participants' questions
about their own PD audio projects.
---What to bring:
1) Laptop running Linux, OS X or Windows
2) Pure Data Extended installed from:
3) Soundcard (internal or external, quality a non-issue)
5) EUR 10 participation fee
1) MIDI controller/keyboard
3) USB Joystick
4) Your own soundfiles (WAV, AIFF format)
5) Your own PD audio projects for feedback
---About the Teacher
Derek Holzer [USA 1972] began working with Pure Data in 2001. Since
then, he has taught and performed with the program across Europe,
North America, Brazil and New Zealand. His work focuses on field
recording, networked collaboration strategies, experiments in
improvisational sound and the use of free software such as
Pure-Data. Holzer has released tracks under the Nexsound, Sirr,
and/OAR and Gruenrekorder labels, and has co-initiated several
internet projects for field recording and collaborative soundscapes
including Soundtransit.nl. He is currently writing a Pure Data
beginner's manual for the FLOSS Manuals project.

A weekly series of constructivist workshops emphasising making and
connection within the field of the existent.
Workshops led by field-expert practitioners extend over realms of code
and embedded code, environmental code, noise, transmission and
reception, and electromysticism. Workshops solely utilise free
software and GNU toolbase.
Practitioners include Julian Oliver (http://selectparks.net/), Derek
Holzer (http://soundtransit.nl), Jeff Mann (http://jeffmann.com),
Martin Howse (http://1010.co.uk), Fredrik Olofsson
(http://www.fredrikolofsson.com/), superfactory (http://superfactory.biz)
Further planned workshops will cover PD connectivity and hardware, the
Arduino platform, ATmega8 microcontrollers, free software
documentation, VLF reception, radio antenna design, analogue TV
transmission, FPGA design... full details tbc.
Please RSVP m at 1010.co.uk to reserve any places or register
interest. Please forward.
