DRU CreativeLab workshops at Futuresonic, Manchester, UK :: 17 - 21 July 2006, Monday - Friday, 11:00 - 17:00 pm :: Registration fee: FREE!

WORKSHOP #1 "Game modification - games as audiovisual tools" :: BY: Tom Betts & Alison Mealey :: WHEN: 17 - 18 - 19 July :: Through this workshop you'll learn about game modification and how to use game generated data as input for audio and/or visuals. We'll look at level design, game engines and game data, and how to use specific game generated data (i.e. coordinates) in a Digital Signal Processing application.

WORKSHOP #2 "Introduction to physical computing" :: WHEN: 18 - 19 July :: BY: Tuomo Tammenpää & Daniel Blackburn :: Interested in making a custom hardware interface for your software instrument or embedding electronics to your art project but don't know where to start? Two intensive days will give you an introduction to physical computing. We will push buttons, lit LED's, make sounds, detect movement and interface with computer.

WORKSHOP #3 "Controlling sound with the Blender game engine" :: WHEN: 19 - 20 - 21 July :: BY: Enrike Hurtado & Andy Gracie :: This workshop is all about the creation of simple game environments, and using them to generate sound. During the workshop, a whole system for game play and audio will be developed and, most important, played with! The game you'll develop will be playable individually and over the network.

WORKSHOP #4 "Go Forth! - real-time graphics and 8bit sound" :: WHEN: 20 - 21 July :: BY: Tom Schouten, Aymeric Mansoux & Marloes de Valk (GOTO10) :: Go Forth! is a 2 day workshop in which you will build your own mini 8bit synthesizer using a PIC chip. Because fresh tunes simply taste better with some eye candy, we'll also teach you how to make real-time graphics. Go Forth! is based on 100% FLOSS (Free Libre Open Source Software).
