Pd Convention - Weimar: "So Pure - so Data"

Well, finally made it! It's been totally worth the wait. Quote of the day (and perhaps of the week) has to be: "So Pure - so Data" (Kyriakos Tsoukalas).

Pure Data mini-conference

Well People, it's done! 
The ball has been set rolling for a two-day pure data mini-conference. It takes place March 4th and 5th in the Department of Music in Trinity College Dublin and there will be an evening concert March 4th at 7PM. There's still space for your papers, compositions, performance proposals, and/or presentations.  

My contribution will be a piece of specially composed microtonal music involving Pure Data and scrap percussion - a collaboration with Roger Gregg. 

The evening performance is free to members of the TCD community thanks to kind support from the Provost's Visual and Performing Arts fund.
