In a four-day workshop hosted by V2_, sound artists Frank Barknecht and 
Aymeric Mansoux will introduce the basics of Audio Signal Processing (ASP) 
in the fields of real-time music production. This workshop specifically 
targets people who want to develop their work in the digital sound field or 
those people curious about the processes involved behind the audio software 
they already use.

The program starts with a theoretical introduction to the basics of digital 
sound, after which participants will work with the open source software 
Pure Data (PD) to turn theory into practice. The workshop also teaches and 
demonstrates which free technologies are available for audio streaming, 
such as icecast, ogg and vorbis.

A Le Placard headphone concert Rotterdam Headphone Lounge will wrap up this 
four-day workshop on Sunday 4 September with performances by Erik 
Minkkinen, Sei Matsumura, Robert van Heumen, Tom Schouten and Guy Van Belle.

The deadline for applications is 19 August 2005. For all information check
