workshop: touchdesigner by ali bozkurt

Derivative TouchDesigner is a node-based visual programming software for generating, editing, compositing and animating real-time imagery. With its built-in functions and operators for many graphics-pipeline features and tools, TouchDesigner is widely used to generate 3D geometries in realtime for live events, art & museum installations and exhibitions. Its ability to consistently and eciently work with cross-platform devices and input devices,TouchDesigner is preferred by many live designers, VJs and artists to exhibit their work in various setups. In this workshop, we’ll make a general introduction to TouchDesigner and its basic UI, and we’ll build an audio-reactive system to generate a custom geometry that is driven by certain values that we extract from any audio input in realtime.
