Pure Data Patching Circle This Sunday June 22nd

We will be having a patching circle on Sunday 6/22 from noon to 4 pm at CRASH Space.

What is Pure Data (Pd)? Pd is an open source visual programming language used by artists and musicians all around the world. It’s creator, Miller Puckette, teaches computer music at UCSD, and was the creator of the original version of Max/MSP.

A patching circle is an informal gathering of anyone who is interested in patching languages (Pure Data, Max/MSP/Jitter, etc.).  Beginners and experienced patchers are welcome.  Open to everyone – work on personal or professional projects, school work, or just patch quietly to yourself, in a room full of other people patching patches and helping other people patch.

Free and open to the public (donations to CRASH Space are welcome, of course).

We will be building the Adafruit Drawdio kit. It turns a pencil into a musical instrument. It’s super easy to build and a great way to learn how to solder (don’t worry, we’ll teach you. We’ll have all the tools you need.
