"Bang, Beep, Buzz, Blip: Introducing Pure Data"


Archway 2 - 1:00 pm, Friday 31 July


Pure Data (Pd) is a graphical data-flow environment for multimedia, created by Miller Puckette of the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts at UCSD. It's a fun, versatile and intuitive environment providing high-level handling of audio signals, events, I/O, and 2D and 3D video.

This talk will introduce the system and examine its paradigms, philosophy and architecture, with some demonstrations. I'll describe how I came to find it and what I've used it for so far (including some hardware hacking!), and consider other potential applications.
