Kirk Kaiser, author of Make Art With Python, shared this playlist of videos, looking at learning to program with python and the Critter & Guitar ETC video synthesizer.
The Critter and Guitari ETC is an open source video synthesizer that runs Python and Pygame, and generates visuals meant to accompany a musical performance. It can be controlled via an audio signal and an optional MIDI input, and runs a set of Pygame sketches that interact with the MIDI, Audio, and 4 adjustable knobs on the device.
