Pure Data workshop @ Piksel10

Some photo documentation from the Pure Data workshop held in Bergen during the Piksel10 festival. The workshop was held by Servando Barreiro and Arnfinn Killingtveit and was hosted by Piksel and TRAFO in collaboration. The audio is from the jam the last day of the workshop.

During the workshop, the students constructed simple software instruments and effects in pure data from scratch, were shown how to hack existing patches, learned about crude frequency analysis, explored the possibilities of video manipulation in pure data with GEM, made their own DIY reactable (without the projection), and learned about FM and AM synthesis, among other things.


pd_opencv 0.2-rc4

after a week of intensive workshop in BALTAN  laboratories
a new version of OpenCV for PD has been released,
version 0.2-rc4 that fixes the following issues :

##########################
version 0.2-rc4 ( codename BALTANIK )

* fixed colorspace problems for mac ppc
* contours detection objects ( hu_compare and pgh_compare ) now give the posititon of matching contours.
* a folder of examples have been added, they should work with pd-extended.

##########################

you can find binaries for mac osx and linux packages on the wiki
as well as the source code ( for those who want to compile it ) here :

Programming electronic music in Pd

New book by Johannes Kreidler now available online.

Abstract
Pd was initiated by American software engineer Miller Puckette, who previous co-developed the well known and similarly structured software Max/Msp. Pd is not commercial software; i.e., it was not developed by a corporation and is not for sale. Instead, it is “open source”: its source code is not the (patented) property of a corporation, but is rather freely available to all. One drawback to this is that a detailed operating manual for users who lack programming experience has not existed until now. In contrast to a corporation— which has a monetary interest in ensuring that first-time users can easily operate new software—the open source movement lacks such a driving force to make itself accessible. This book is an attempt to fill that gap.

This tutorial is designed for self-study, principally for composers. It begins with explanations of basic programming and acoustic principles then gradually builds up to the most advanced electronic music processing techniques. The book’s teaching approach is focused primarily on hearing, which we consider a faster and more enjoyable way to absorb new concepts than through abstract formulas.

The patches described are available for download.
