Our friend Florian Grote is giving a workshop at STEIM in Amsterdam on Pure Data, the open source patching environment that’s a close cousin to Max/MSP. Florian tells us there are a couple of spots left for anyone near STEIM. The workshop is geared for composers, live performers who want to create their own instruments, and installation/visual artists interested in working with GEM’s visual capabilities.

The workshop will start with a thorough, two-day introduction to creative audio work in Pd, and then expand its focus on the GEM extension library for Pd. With GEM, sophisticated tools for visualization are available directly inside Pd, and their handling is not different from the audio-related elements. This enables Pd users to seamlessly integrate their own visuals into their musical performances or installations, as well as to get creative with the user interfaces for their instruments.

Cost is EUR200. There’s also a class blog, which I’ll be watching closely to make up for not being out there.

    say what you will, GEM might be outdated, but to me, openGL will always be king, and combined with Pd, you better watch the f* out!

  • Hi

    Was wondering if you might be able to help please. I'm looking for tutors of digital music courses or workshops who may want to promote their classes on Artsbowl – a creative courses hub. I thought you might be interested or perhaps you know someone? We have a blog on this topic ready to go live, just need a few course providers for this category to link to, if possible. It's free to join and create course listings & links to all new courses are posted via social network channels like Twitter and Facebook.

    Kind regards, Cilente
