xxxxx workshop_7_x Berlin

A (more-or-less) weekly series of constructivist workshops emphasising
making and connection within the field of the existent.

17th March: Oscillation Overthruster. Pure Data (PD), synthesis and
noise with Derek Holzer
(http://www.umatic.nl/info_derek.html). Details below.

24th March. Break for LAC [Linux Audio Conference] or project discuss tbc.

April projected: GNU Emacs, noise_produce part three, television
transmission, the C programming language?

Please RSVP m at 1010.co.uk with interest as places are limited.

17th March: Oscillation Overthruster--Pure Data (PD) Synthesis,
Feedback and Noise

with Derek Holzer (http://www.umatic.nl/info_derek.html).

Pure Data is a powerful, free and open source environment for
producing and manipulating sound, image and data in real time. This
hands-on workshop will concentrate on using oscillators, filters,
feedback and noise to create your own self-modulating/generative sound
systems. Go for that classic analog sound, do the digital
clicks-n-cuts thing, or indulge in a noise orgy freakout... Since we
will cover quite a bit of Pure Data and DSP (Digital Signal
Processing) basics, this workshop is ideal for PD beginners as well as
experienced users who want to come and make some noise
together. External inputs and controllers such as MIDI
keyboards/faderboxes, USB joysticks, sensors or microphones could be
useful, but not required.

---What to bring:

* Essential:

1) Laptop running Linux, OS X or Windows
2) Pure Data Extended installed from:
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 PD audio projects for feedback/show-and-tell

---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), Fredrik Olofsson
(http://www.fredrikolofsson.com/), superfactory (http://superfactory.biz)

Further planned workshops will cover Pd connectivity and hardware, the
Arduino platform, ATmega8 microcontrollers, UNIX process, 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.
