25-29 JUNE 2007

Pure Data (or PD) is a visual programming language for the creation of interactive computer music, video and multimedia works. It has become a pioneering application in the contemporary art field. This workshop is an opportunity for video makers, musicians, artists and designers to learn how to process and organize image, sounds and video and how to use the networking possibilities of Pure Data.


During an introductory 2-day workshop (25 | 26 June) participants will learn the basics of using PD and of manipulating video, images and sound. In the 2nd workshop (27 | 28 | 29 June) you will get more in-depth knowledge and work for 3 days on your own PureData sound or video project.

It is a 5-day workshop, but depending on your experience and preferences it is possible only to follow the introductory workshop or only the in-depth workshop.
