Sound Art in Pure Data

In our second Pure Data workshop, we'll apply what we picked up in the first session to sound: recording it, playing it back and making it do strange and unpredictable things. We'll explore effects like delays and distortion, we'll speed sound up, slow it down and make it go backwards, and we'll think about it musically, building a basic sequencer.

What's Pure Data again?

Pure Data, also known as Pd, is an open source graphical programming environment. It is frequently used by artists and musicians to create custom digital sythesizers, images that respond to sound and other inputs, or to interface with hardware such as Arduino and midi keyboards. This workshop delves deeper into this powerful tool.

How much prior experience do I need?

Ideally, you've taken last week's Pd workshop, or have some experience with Pd.

Does this fit in with other workshops this month?

Heck yeah! If you took the Field Recording Workshop the week before, you can use those recordings in this workshop. And we want all the artists and musicians in these workshops to sign up to perform or jam in the InterAccess Handmade Music Jam on June 15th
