Nick System, Concentric Curriculum Bang, An Introduction to Pure Data

Dates: July 5, 2 - 5pm


In this 3 hour introductory workshop, we will explore the Pure Data programming environment. Pure Data allows us to make interactive and generative multimedia works without needing to learn how to code. Pure Data can enable almost any digital audio project imaginable to become a reality. It is often used for algorithmic composition, sound installations, electronic instrument design, creating effects and building performance tools.

As part of the workshop we will learn how to:

  • Navigate the environment and create Pure Data ‘patches’
  • Incorporate interactivity using ASCII and MIDI
  • Record and playback audio (sampling)
  • Build a music sequencer
  • Use chance and probability with random number generators
  • Understand programming concepts without worrying about syntax

A basic understanding of audio, and computer use is required but no coding or programming experience is necessary.

This workshop is pay as you feel. We Suggest a donation of $5 if you can afford it.

Numbers are limited for this workshop, so please email nina@busprojects.org.au to RSVP.
