February 10th: Pure Data with Derek Holzer


Pure Data is a powerful, free and open source environment for
producing and manipulating sound, image and data in real time. Because
the programming is done visually, many artists find it a more
intuitive tool than traditional text-oriented programming
languages. However, many newcomers to PD miss the chance to learn the
"grammar" and "vocabulary" of this visual language, and this results
in confusion about how PD actually handles sounds and images.

This one-day workshop will give an introduction to Pure Data for
beginners and for experienced users who might have missed some of the
fundamentals of the program. We will construct a basic sound
synthesizer, and use this exercise to go over the deeper mysteries of
what makes PD tick.

Time will also be set aside for responding to participants' questions
about their own PD audio projects.

---What to bring:

* Essential:

1) Laptop running Linux, OS X or Windows
2) Pure Data installed from: http://at.or.at/hans/pd/installers.html
3) Soundcard (internal or external, quality a non-issue)
4) Headphones (!!!!)
5) EUR 10 participation fee

* Recommended/Suggested:

1) MIDI controller/keyboard
2) Microphone
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 beginner's manual
for Pure Data.




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) and many more tbc.

Further planned workshops will cover SuperCollider, the Arduino
platform, ATmega8 microcontrollers, PCB etching, base electronics,
schmitt trigger noise generation, UNIX process, documentation, VLF
reception, analogue TV transmission, FPGA design... full details tbc.
