Reminder: Int. Symposium on Ambisonics and Spherical Acoustics, Paris, May 2010 - Call for Papers

[Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this message.]

-----------------------------------------------------------
  2nd Int. Symposium on Ambisonics and Spherical Acoustics
  Dates: 2010 May 6-7, Paris, France
  ambi10 - Second Call for Participation
  http://ambisonics10.ircam.fr

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to announce the 2nd International Symposium on  
Ambisonics and Spherical Acoustics, which will be organized by IRCAM,  
together with LIMSI-CNRS and France Telecom/Orange Labs. The Symposium  
will be held to provide an intensive exchange between industrial and  
academic researchers working in various research areas on spherical  
acoustics.

The field of spatial sound reproduction is interdisciplinary by nature  
and closely related to a number of computer science and engineering  
areas such as acoustics, mathematics, signal processing, and  
perception. The symposium focuses on discussing the various problems  
and solutions concerning the capture, analysis, and re-synthesis of  
sound fields applying spherical acoustics; for example higher-order  
Ambisonics (HOA), and spherical microphone arrays.

The symposium is going to be divided into oral presentations (keynotes  
and submissions), poster sessions, and two demonstration sessions  
(artistic and technical). This symposium will benefit from a hemi- 
spherical loudspeaker array that will be installed for the duration of  
the symposium, which will be held in the Espace de projection, the

Open Up-workshop on digital facades: collaborators needed (Madrid, Spain)


Call for collaborators
Open Up Workshop: projects for the digital façade of Medialab-Prado


Deadline: February 8, 2010
Dates of the workshop: February 9 through 23, 2010
Venue: Medialab-Prado in Madrid (Spain)

Join us for the Open Up international workshop! This event is focused on the development of 8 selected projects for the digital façade in Medialab-Prado cultural center's building. The goals of the workshop are to explore the relationship between the urban screen and public space, to experiment with the screen’s communicative, narrative and visual capacities, and to investigate its potential to offer new forms of participation.

According to its field of interest, each collaborator can be part of any team, bringing his/her knowledge and ideas to the workgroup and, at the same time, learning from the group and the teachers: Jordi Claramonte, Chandler McWilliams, Casey Reas, and Víctor Viña. Directed and coordinated by Nerea Calvillo.

For residents out of Madrid, Medialab-Prado will cover for the stay of a limited number of participants at a Youth Hostel during the workshop.

No entry fees.

Puredyne 9.10 - Carrot and Coriander

Sorry for crossposting, please drink soup

Puredyne 9.10 - Carrot and Coriander 
------------------------------------

Puredyne is a GNU/Linux live distribution aimed at creative people,
looking for tools outside the standard. It provides the best
experimental creative applications alongside a solid set of graphic,
audio and video tools in a fast, minimal package. For everything from
sound art to innovative filmmaking.

Puredyne is optimised for use in realtime audio and video processing. It
distinguishes itself by offering a low latency kernel and the high
responsiveness needed by artists working in this field.

Puredyne is based on Ubuntu and Debian Live. All packages provided by
Puredyne can be used if you are running this flavour of GNU/Linux.

http://puredyne.goto10.org/about.html

// 

64-bit support!
---------------

(.. and more architectures to come...)

Starting with this release, we are happy to provide support for a new
experimental branch of Puredyne for 64-bit CPUs. We need your feedback
to develop this further, so please get one of these amd64 Puredyne CD or
DVD, and tell us how it works for you!

http://puredyne.goto10.org/download.html

Yeah, fork me baby!!!
---------------------

Thanks to broth, the mother of all soups, it is now very easy to make
your own Puredyne based recipe. Get the pan, mix in your ingredients
and cook slowly. Using broth, two new Puredyne/broth based distros have
been released:

 * Puredyne craftivism: a special liveUSB key specially made for the
   craftivism exhibition. You can purchase (at cost) this collector item
   at the Arnolfini Gallery in Bristol, UK. http://www.craftivism.net

 * sidistro: a greek flavoured distribution focussed on privacy and 
   anonymity. http://sid.gr/doku.php/agenda/distro

Why not make one yourself? (and impress friends and family with
your very own livethingie)
https://launchpad.net/broth

Join the team!
--------------

(we have internets)

Do you like adventures? Giant robots, waterfalls and dinosaurs? Then
join the dev team! We are always looking for people to help us make
Puredyne a better distribution for musicians, artists and media
designers. We need help on all fronts! you can type a mail? you're
hired! :)

Free Libre Open Source Soup + Art
---------------------------------

(as seen in /usr/share/soup)

A nice soup, a classic combination made with both fresh and
ground coriander - but the fresh coriander added near the end of cooking
really adds the bright flavour of coriander to match with the carrot.

Ingredients
===========
* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 1 large onion,diced
* 500g carrots, diced
* 1 teaspoon ground coriander
* 1.2 litres vegetable stock
* large bunch Fresh Coriander, roughly chopped
* Salt
* Black Pepper

Method
======

1. Heat the olive oil in a non-stick pan, to a medium heat.

2. Add the sliced carrots and diced onions. Cook for approximately 5
   minutes until they start to soften.

3. Add the ground coriander and salt & pepper. Cook for a further 1
   minute.

4. Add the vegetable stock bring the mixture to the boil. Simmer for
   10-15 minutes until the carrots are very soft.

5. Blend until smooth.

6. Add the fresh coriander.

7. Serve.

Pure Data presentation - La Cantine - Paris

Sorry in french

REMIX LA CANTINE : Pure Data : une matinée pour bien démarrer

Formation par Thomas Thiery

N'hésitez pas à amener votre ordinateur personnel.
Pure Data est un environnement de programmation graphique dédié au son et à la vidéo pour le temps réel. Comme tout environnement de programmation il n'est pas vraiment possible de former des débutants à ce langage en une seule journée. Néanmoins une demi-journée permet de faire découvrir les possibilités de l'environnement, de montrer des exemples d'utilisation, donner quelques bases de programmations et enfin de fournir des ressources pour que chacun puisse poursuivre sa formation s'il le souhaite.Cette formation prendra plus la forme d'une présentation et sera d'une durée de 4 heures.
1. Pure Data - Origines - Qu'est ce?
2. Quelques bases de programmation
3. Des exemples commentés sous Pure Data (DIY, Netpd, PDMTL...)
4. Les ressources

Le 28 Janvier 2010 de 09h00 à 13h00
La cantine 
151 rue Montmartre, Passage des Panoramas
