Watch out for what ever comes out of this!

Pure:dyne Code Sprint- Goto10 @ LABoral Centro de Arte y Creacion Industrial
9th to 15th of August 2009

The artist collective GOTO10 gathers at LABoral this summer for an intense week of coding in support of the ongoing Pure:dyne project, which is underway at this very moment.

Pure:dyne is a GNU/Linux operating system developed by and for artists that offers a complete set of tools for processing audio and video in real time, making it an ideal work platform. Developed by GOTO10 alongside a community of users, Pure:dyne includes the tools most frequently employed by digital artists, all in a coherently integrated format: Pure Data, Supercollider, Icecast, Csound, Fluxus, Processing, Arduino, amongst others. Used by artists, medialabs and universities, Pure:dyne is a powerfult instrument and a network structured for artistic production through the use of FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software).
*The LABoral ‘code sprint’ is one of a series initiated by GOTO10 to gather members from across Europe for seven days to work on new features and system developments. Sharing a common living and working space, away from distractions, this intense working method is popular in FLOSS projects to inject a lasting energy into volunteer developers who otherwise collaborate online.

The discoveries and advances made by the Pure:dyne team are to be made available and become a permanent part of the Platform 2 Multimedia Production Centre of LABoral.
