ABOUT THE SOFTWARE:

pure:dyne is an essential tool created to provide the first complete,
Free/Libre/open source (FLOSS) custom and ready-made GNU/Linux computer
environment for media artists. The pure:dyne CD can be inserted and run
on a computer without the need to install anything, with an aim to make
it simple to use on many types of hardware. It contains FLOSS programs
for recording and manipulating sound, making live visuals and creating
interactive media in installation, and more.

This event is part of the pure:dyne for everyone project, a national
series designed to make pure:dyne more accessible through special events
with partnering media arts centres across the country.


Supported by the Creative Partnerships programme of Arts Council England.
