The Processing workshop with Dominik Markušić & Franka Tretinjak will allow visitors to engage in creating visuals thanks to sound waves of their favorite electronic beats. The idea is for participants to use mp3/wav tracks from which a visual will be generated in Processing code. The work will later be exported and available for application or print. Participants should bring their own laptop with the latest version of Processing installed. Some familiarity with both is recommended, but not necessary.
