pure:dyne News + pure:dyne for everyone

puredyne.jpgpure:dyne News – Who is pure:dyne for? pure:dyne is for everyone! pure:dyne has been adopted by artists, schools, media arts centers and their local communities as a common, complete GNU / Linux platform for Free / Libre / Open Source Software (FLOSS) art production and education. pure:dyne is used by communities across Europe and the world for recording and manipulating sound, making live visuals, creating interactive media in installations, and more.

Through pure:dyne for everyone, pure:dyne will reach out to more people – noobs, artists, local users – in a year-long programme of system development, documentation, user support and special public events with partnering media arts centers across the UK. pure:dyne for everyone is a project by GOTO10 and friends. With partners Access Space, MediaShed and Folly, pure:dyne for everyone is supported by the Creative Partnerships programme of Arts Council England.

As part of pure:dyne for everyone, pure:dyne’s core developer team (plus friends) will stage three code sprints in 2008 to develop all aspects of the system and documentation. Be a lurker and join our IRC channel #pure:dyne on to check what’s being cooked. pure:dyne is currently developed by Rob Canning, Heather Corcoran, Antonios Galanopoulos, Karsten Gebbert, Claude Heiland-Allen, Aymeric Mansoux, Chun Lee, and Marloes de Valk.

4. A new, Debian based pure:dyne!

Starting 2008, pure:dyne will be based on the Debian operating system. While we aim to provide the same features as before and a live distribution in the form of a live CD, live DVD and live USB, we will be able to build up on top of the great Debian community and provide a larger range of software and develop much more advanced functionalities. At the same time we are quite happy to give back in return our efforts to this community and make available the software we package for most Debian based distros around.

    Call for 60 sec Sonic Material by Institute of viral sonology

    Call for 60 sec Sonic Material by Institute of viral sonology

    This call consists of exploring the potentiality of the computer as an automatic machine to generate compositional material and aesthetics content based on stochastic probabilities.

    60 second files
    6 composers collaborators
    6 minute compositions
    12 tracks

    Connecting and collecting sound material from different collaborators without prior selection. Constructing a social and artistic possibility to generate aesthetic content based on the power of computer algorithmic to compose in a randomatic aesthetic.

    Thanks to all collaborators,
    Institute of viral sonology
    Director: Hugo Paquete.
