An open exchange [ presentations + debate + performances + party ] around the real-time use of sensors controlled through PureData will be held on January 30, 2004 in the openfriday@straddle3.
PD is a real-time graphical programming environment for audio and graphical processing, developed by Miller Smith Puckette. PD is a multiplatform and open source software (runs on Win32, IRIX, LINUX and Mac-OSX). It is easy to extend PD with plug-ins (so-called 'externals'). Many collections of externals (so-called 'libraries') are already available. It is used as a rapid prototype-software for DSP(Digital Signal Processing)-algorithmn, and also as a music instrument and universal multimedia software. Also it is used in the academic field for teaching and exploring computer music and new media art." >from *About Pure Data*. The Pure Data Portal.
Presentations and performances by:
> (((universomente))) (carlos botto aka caen). Caen is an intermedia artist, composer and researcher that created Universomente, independent laboratory of production and research in audiovisual experimental techniques and interactive communication. Nowadays working in the presentation of interactive installations, performances and researching in the field of the real time control of audiovisual media (see butterflystorm, ictuscopyk, jardineria fractal y cultivos tecnorgánicos).
> nice-noise (alejandro posada aka alex). NICE-NOISE are a formation entered in the musical work production, image and experimental sound,installations and in the design and manufacture of devices applied to the audio-visual art. This fusion reflects the sintesis of an alliance that from the childhood is fed by music, science and the art. members: Carlos M. Franco, Alejandro Posada Entrecanales
> onnirik.org (xavi manzanares aka moe) its a net node, that experience and research subversive and hybrid territories in culture,sound, technologies, and political actions. Is figuring out the connection among multisensoriality inside individual perception and communication fluxes inside collective experience. onnirikteam >>xavi manzanares + leo sanchis
> puredata from riereta.net (ramiro cosentino aka rama + jaume nualart aka jaume). Riereta.net, a human trusted network that owes very much to the model of free software communities, both for the software used, and for the internal organisation, based on spontaneity, curiosity and cooperation.
> r3 :: rebel.refuse.resist aka skeezo. our collective is born as audio-visual creation platform tied to the social movements and the 'alternative' information. this takes us to introduce in the free software community of and to contemplate the true "social movement" to level of communication in networks, between the endless source of ideas and resources that contributes to us, arrive to us new creation concepts (real-time, memetics, cyborg, recycling va), ideas (pd/linux in a xbox, net-collaborative audio/video) and tools (PS pdp-pidip gem) that now we used for almost all our creative processes.
