Praxis: a Media Framework by Neil Smith

Thursday 16th of August, 7pm.

Neil Smith is a composer based in Oxford.

Praxis is a Java-based modular framework for live creative play with video, images, audio, and other media. Its primary focus is on the easy development of generative and interactive media installations, as well as live performance. Praxis LIVE is a graphical, patcher-style interface for developing Praxis projects ‘on the fly’. It is partly inspired by projects such as AudioMulch, Bidule and Isadora, and to a lesser extent Pure Data and Processing; however, it is not intended to be a clone of any of them.

Praxis and Praxis LIVE are released under the GPLv3 licence, and can be downloaded from http://code.google.com/p/praxis/
