Pure Data/ Free and Open Source Software Workshop
-------------------------------------------------
VJ | Video editing | Audio editing
----------------------------------

Hosted by OpenMute, London UK - Monday 13 Dec - Tuesday 14 Dec

**PD.ZILLA --- PURE DATA STOMPS THE UK!**

Workshops and demos on Free and Open Source Software by Aymeric Mansoux
and Derek Holzer.

While many tools exist for sound, multimedia and VJ purposes, few of
them are designed with the kind of open architecture that allows artists
to reconfigure the tools themselves. Fewer still are free to use, share
and rebuild.

This workshop introduces the software combination of Pure Data, GEM and
PDP/PiDiP, running on the Linux operating system, as a platform for
audio, video and multimedia artists to explore.

The program
-----------

DAY ONE

INTERMEDIATE: aimed towards people with some basic familiarity with
computers, and who would like to increase their knowledge of Pure Data,
digital audio+video and Linux.

1
Installation Clinic(workshop participants only) [HANDS-ON][1 HOUR]

This block of time will be set aside for people to bring in their own
PCs in order to install either the dyne:bolic or Fedora Linux/Planet
CCRMA system of audio video applications. Please set aside a suitable
amount of space on your hard drive! [700 Mb for dyne:bolic, or 5 Gb for
full Linux installation!]

2
Meet Mr. Pure Data[HANDS-ON][3 HOURS]

An introduction to simple programming using the graphical environment of
PD, or Pure Data. Participants will build a simple, monophonic
synthesizer which can be played from the computer keyboard, while
learning some of the basic "grammar" and "vocabulary" of the PD
language. Several ready-made instruments from the RRADical collection of
patches for PD will also be introduced.

3
Everyone Wants to be a VJ, pt. 1[HANDS-ON][3 HOURS]

An introduction to GEM, the Graphics Environment for Multimedia, which
is an external library for PD which allows for the creation and
manipulation of 3D objects. Participants will explore basic 3D shapes +
movements, as well as mapping images and textures onto these shapes.

DAY TWO

INTERMEDIATE: aimed towards people with some basic familiarity with
computers and Pure Data, and with an interest in making live sound and
video.

1.
Our Old Friend, Mr. Pure Data[HANDS-ON][3 HOURS]

A higher level workshop in PD, for those who survived the introduction
and are ready for more complex exercises. Here, we will cover using
tables to manipulate audio samples, filters + delays, creating reusable
modules of code to save you time, and integrating PD into other Linux
audio applications using the Jack Audio Connection Kit.

2.
Everyone Wants to be a VJ pt. 2[HANDS-ON][3 HOURS]

Video mixing and processing using PDP, or Pure Data Packets, another
external for PD. Aymeric will demonstrate how to create abstract video
from noise, how to load Quicktime video clips from the hard drive, and
how to use filters to create video effects.

3.
Installation Clinic(open to the public 6pm) [HANDS-ON][1 HOUR]

This block of time will be set aside for people to bring in their own
PCs in order to install either the dyne:bolic or Fedora Linux/Planet
CCRMA system of audio video applications. Please set aside a suitable
amount of space on your hard drive! [700 Mb for dyne:bolic, or 5 Gb for
full Linux installation!]
