PdWeekend This Weekend

Information is all up on the CRASH Space blog, so I haven’t posted about this here, though I should have.

This weekend, 16-17 November, CRASH Space and New Blankets are hosting PdWeekend, a series of workshops, a patching circle, and Handmade Music 4.0.

Saturday 11/16, we have FOUR workshops with special guest instructors.

Miller Puckette, creator of Pure Data (Pd) will be showing the latest tips and tricks for using Pure Data on the Raspberry Pi.

Katja Vetter will show how to build a quality unidirectional DIY microphone suitable for live recording, and how to use it with Slice//Jockey, a live sampling Pure Data patch.

Ico Bukvic will teach a workshop appropriate for ages 10 and up covering an introduction to Pd-L2ork interactive visual programming environment and its K12 eduction module.

Unlocking Computer Creativity for musicians and creative types using the Pure Data programming language for a minimum of cryptic code and other off-putting digital peculiarities.

Each workshop is three hours long and costs $75 (except for the microphone workshop, which has a $5 materials fee).  CRASH Space members receive discounts on workshop fees (see members list for details).

Saturday night (5:30 – 9:30 PM), we will be having Handmade Music 4.0, with performances by our guest instructors and local musicians.  FREE!

Sunday afternoon (4 – 8 PM) will be our special patching circle with our special guests, featuring performances and demonstrations, as well as the usual patching.  FREE!

Tickets for the workshops, and RSVP for Handmade Music and the patching circle are available at the CRASH Space Eventbrite page.

The workshops and Handmade Music will be taking place at STAR Prep Academy, 10101 Jefferson Blvd. in Culver City.  More information about location and parking are on the CRASH Space blog.
