Pure Data Play, Friday 2nd November

On Friday 2nd November from 12pm I’ll be running a Pure Data workshop as part of Flip Festival at Lighthouse Media Centre in Wolverhampton.


Pure Data is a dataflow programming language that is utilised for a wide variety of purposes including making generative electronic music, creating glitch visuals, interactive live performance and VJing (Video Jockeying). I’ll guide participants through the basics of Pure Data – including general usage, playing and manipulating videos and creating generative visuals that respond to different inputs. No experience of Pure Data is necessary, only a laptop and a willingness to experiment and learn!

The event is free to Flip Festival ticket holders and £6 for everyone else. Tickets can be purchased online. Here’s the event details on Facebook. Don’t forget to bring your laptop!

To see what can be created with Pure Data take a look at what I’ve made in the past.
