San Diego and Los Angeles, California
All pd_LAunch events will be “free and open” to everyone, as much as space and facilities permit. For some events that will be limited by space, we will be providing some signup lists — details forthcoming.
Some events and highlights already planned for pd_LAunch:
* VIP guests: Miller Puckette, Hans-Christoph Steiner, Chris McCormick, Natacha Diehls … more invitations are “in the hopper” as well.

* concert/party/reception “Music with Miller Puckette and Friends” Saturday evening Apr 30 (Miller Puckette, Natacha Diehls, Chris McCormick and more …)
* workshops and demonstrations by Hans Steiner, Chris McCormick, Miller Puckette and others are being arranged … These will be based on what the interest/registrations indicate and depending on what spaces/venues in LA can be arranged. (Some spaces larger than the CRASHspace location may be required.)
* A “goody bag” and other items available for pd_LAunch sponsors/RSVP‘rs/contributors to include a 20-lecture puredata video course by Miller Puckette, pd_LAunch souvenirs made on the CRASHspace Makerbots, live-USB sticks ready to boot-up and run Linux/pd on any computer etc etc.
* “Store-front music” a transformation of the street-front of CRASHspace into an
interactive puredata experience, following up on the CRASHspace smash-hit effort for VIMBY. (Get your patch out on the street …)
