Software Description

Praxis Live is a modular framework for live multimedia playing

It is a Java-based modular framework for live creative play with audio, video, images and other media.

It focuses primarily on development of generative and interactive media installations, as well as live performance.

Instead of the usual non graphics Linux applications, Praxis LIVE uses a graphical, patcher-style interface.

Praxis is developed by UK Artist and Technologist Neil C Smith, partly inspired by projects such as AudioMulch, Bidule and Isadora, and to a lesser extent Pure Data and Processing.
