The aim of this workshop is to learn simple programming strategies for the creation of audio/video software tools for live performances. Generative or interactive piece of software that let artist creates and controls a video stream or an audio processing in real time.

During the workshop we will use Pure Data, a free (as a bird and as a beer) graphical programming language particularly focused on the processing of audio and video data in real time. Pure data is a tool for artists whom wants experiment with a
different creation pattern, with a freedom to build from the scratch they own instruments or interactive installation. You dont need to be a programmer to begin to build your tool. In 5-6 days long workshop you will learn the basis of language, how to manipulate or create a video and how to play with audio. At the end of the workshop all participants will play in a jam session together in the Lab space or exhibit their prototypes.

Participation is limited to 12.
