5 Day Pure Data Workshop. 21st - 25th June.
A10Lab presents a 5 Day Pure Data Workshop lead by Luca Carrubba and Oscar Martin.
CRAZY GENERATIVE A/V MACHINES
The aim of this workshop is to learn simple programming strategies for the creation of audio/video software tools for live performances. Generative or interactive pieces of software that let artists create and control video streams and audio processing in real time.
During the workshop we will use puredata, a free (as a bird and as a beer) graphical programming language particularly focused on the processing of audio and video data in real time. Puredata is a tool for artists who want to experiment with a different creation pattern, with a freedom to build from scratch their own instruments. You dont need to be a programmer to begin to build your tool. In 5 the days long workshop you will learn the basics of the language, how to manipulate or create a video and how to play with audio. At the end of the workshop all the participants will take part in a performance event open to the public.
From Monday 21st June to Friday 25th June 2010. 3 hours a day. 7pm - 10pm.
Saturday 26th June - Live performance event with invited performers and all participants from the workshop!
Participation is £100 and limited to 20 people.

Graduated summa cum laude in Sociology of Communication, Luca Carrubba has worked for 5 years under the new media field as artist and independent researcher. Formed between institutional and underground medialabs in Barcelona and Madrid, he focus its production on the interaction between audio and video, always share the practices and codes. Based its action on certain keywords like DIY (do it yourself), knowledge sharing, accessibility, recycling and social movements. Also participated in many workshops to spread free software/technology/culture among Italy, Spain, England, Germany, France, Argentina, Brazil, Palestine and China. He is now professor of new technologies for art in Libera Accademia delle Belle Arti, Brescia, Italy.

Oscar Martin holds a Fine Arts degree from the Universidad Politecnica of Valencia, specializing in Sculpture and Audiovisual Media. That is where he came into contact with sound art through Leopoldo Amigo y Bartolome Ferrando. A sound explorer, he bases his work on the deconstruction of field recordings and the creative use of technology errors. Luthier-digital with a puredata environment, which he uses to develop his own experimental tools for processing and real time algorithmic-generative composition. He can be placed somewhere between Computer Music, the Aesthetics of Error, and generative Noise.
He seeks the creation of virtual sound universes, imaginary soundscapes that encourage active listening and a different sensibility toward the perception of sound phenomena. He works under the open source paradigm. All his work is published under Creative Commons licence, by different recording labels and netlabels (dronerecords, tecnoNucleo, costellam, etc).
