In 1998, our family bought our first computer. I remember wondering how it worked... It became one of my first fascinations. That is something that never left me as I got older.
I have been working with the program Pure:Data for about a year now, it was my first real foray into any kind of programming. I began learning it to build a basic synthesizer, taking the free alternative to buying a real one. I still work in it occasionally to process sound and just as a learning tool to better understand sound itself.
