Connecting software and hardware to make and perform music and video can be a complicated business. This workshop will take the trial and error out of the process.
We will use protocols including MIDI and OSC to communicate between applications. At the end of the session you will have the foundations of an AV show which you can build upon and develop into a performance.
Participants will need to bring their own laptop (Linux, MacOS or Windows) with the trial versions of some software pre-installed: VDMX, Resolume, Puredata, Ableton Live and Traktor will all be used in this workshop and your tutor will guide you through the finer details of how to link them together.
Participants should also bring some content, please download a few freebie video clips or vj loop packs if you don’t have some already, the same goes for Audio. There are plenty of places to find free AV content: https://archive.org/index.php is a good place to start.
