Live Stage: Pure Data Convention [de Berlin]

pure.jpgJoão Pais (& others) @ Pure Data Convention 2011 :: August 8 and 9, 2011:: Weimar ~ Berlin :: Understanding and being creative with Pure Data’s data structures ::

“The original idea in developing Pd was to make a real-time computer music performance environment like Max, but somehow to include also a facility for making computer music scores with user-specifiable graphical representations. … Pd is designed to offer an extremely unstructured environment for describing data structures and their graphical appearance. The underlying idea is to allow the user to display any kind of data he or she wants to, associating it in any way with the display.” Miller Puckette, Using Pd as a score language (2002)

Pure Data’s data structures are one of the few core features that distinguish Pd from Max/MSP. Yet, they’re also one of the few libraries which are used solely by a small group of users. The main reasons for this would be both the not yet very mature and complete collection of objects, as well as with the not very intuitive implementation in Pd’s language. In the end, this very powerful feature becomes (unnecessarily) too complicated to use. Continue reading
