Workshop: Introduction to Max
Participation in the workshop is free. Sign up by sending a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief biography and motivation. If you have specific projects or interests that you want to use Max for, please let us know, so that we can plan the workshop accordingly.
The workshop will run November 16-20 1000-1600, and consist of a mix of teaching, excersises and creative work on your own projects. Time will be set aside for supervision on the individual projects of each of the participants.
Participants are expected to bring their own Mac or Win laptop/PC. A 30-day fully functioning demo version of Max 7 can be downloaded from Cycling’74. If you don’t have access to a laptop of your own, please let us know.
Patching is how you make things work in Max. Connect boxes together to make interactive sounds, graphics, custom effects, and rich experiences. Patching is like programming, but more organic and immediate. No matter what you have on your table, you can probably make it talk to Max; Arduino, controllers, synthesizers, DMX lighting, projectors and live inputs.
Max is the language of Electronic Art and Music. Today Max is used all over the world in museums, music studios, galleries, universities, art schools, stages, research labs, and anywhere the limits of technology and creativity are being tested.
