Pure Date Handmade Music Workshop Series

We have a whole weekend of Pure Data / Raspberry Pi events coming up! Check out our list below and sign up for the event(s) of your choice.

What is Pure Data? Pure Data (Pd) is an open source, visual programming language geared towards musicians and artists, but it can be used for most anything. It is the free version of Cycling 74′s Max/MSP, but it runs on just about any computer, even the Raspberry Pi.

The Raspberry Pi is a $35 computer that runs Linux and connects to your television. Combined with Pd, it can be used as an embedded noise toy, a guitar effects pedal, or just as a cheap portable way to play with Pure Data.

Before the Events: Thursday 11/14, we will be having a “Get Started With Pure Data And Raspberry Pi” night where we can help people install and test Pd on their laptop and/or Raspberry Pi – to get ready for the weekend’s workshops, or just because.


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

10am - 1pm: Pure Data + Raspberry Pi: The Adventure Continues (Miller Puckette)

    Is any of this kid friendly?

      Yes! Everything will be kid friendly. We would prefer that any children be accompanied by an adult guardian. If only the child is participating, only one ticket purchase is necessary per event.
