BEFORE MARCH 11th
Pure-Data is a "real-time" graphical programming environment for audio and graphical processing. It was planned as a free, better and more stable Max/fts, which has also been developed by Miller Smith Puckette at IRCAM. It is used as a rapid prototype-software for DSP-algorithms, and also as a music instrument and universal multimedia-software. Being a mature project now, Pure-Data is getting more and more popular in the academic field for teaching and exploring computer music and new media art.
It's hard to describe the possibilities of such an environment as its field of creation is almost infinite. From audio processing, to video, 2D/3D, interactivity, on-line experimentation, streaming and sensors, Pure-Data can handle all of these and provide a rock stable system which is perfect for performances and installations of any kind.
PDP is a set of external objects to PD developed by Tom Schouten. They are based on the idea of processing data in packets. While it is primarily used for video, the basic structure of PDP allows any kind of data to be processed into any other kind of data. Images can be converted to textures, that can be changed into sound, re-rendered again as image, and so on. The possibilities are endless.
Sunday March 27th (from 15:00 until 17:00) a presentation of the workshop will take place. This presentation will be open to an audience invited by the participants. A short overview of the workshop will be given and the participants can share the creations they have made with each other and with the audience.

_A message from the trenches:
PDP has been working on linux for quite a while. For OSX there is
minimal support. The last year PDP has undergone a major restructuring which
mainly aims at a wider platform support and 2D/3D drawing primitives (aka 3DP).
For the OSX users out there: keep an eye on it! We plan to add Altivec,
Quicktime and OpenGL support to use them macs for what they're worth.
