The workshop presents a library for the Pure Data programming language http://puredata.info/ – an open source visual programming environment for interactive computer music and multimedia.
The ELSE library developed by Alexandre Porres – https://github.com/porres/pd-
We’ll also check the quite extensive Live Electronics tutorial by Alexandre Torres Porres (https://github.com/porres/
In the workshop, we’ll cover some synthesis and processing techniques. We’ll build a modular synth and other creative examples with the provided tools and topics.”
