pure:dyne is an essential tool created to provide a complete, Free/Libre/open source (FLOSS) custom and ready-made GNU/Linux computer environment for media artists. The pure:dyne CD can be inserted and run on a computer without the need to install anything, with an aim to make it simple to use on many types of hardware. It contains FLOSS programs for recording and manipulating sound, making live visuals and creating interactive media in installation, and more.

This event is part of the pure:dyne for everyone project, a national series designed to make pure:dyne more accessible through special events with partnering media arts centres across the country.
