Hey all,

More Max this week, this Wednesday the 27th of February at 20:00. Last week we finally got the chance to dive into audio (patches from last week have been posted to the wiki) but we didn't really have time to hook any audio into video. Which is a shame, because one of Max's strong suits is exploring the relationships between media (say audio and video) that did not at first have a clear relationship. So next class will be a quick review of last week, followed by some audio sampling hackery and live video interaction.

I definitely recommend downloading Max before you come, since the NB wifi can get a bit overtaxed otherwise.

----- BEGIN WTF IS A MAX SPIEL -----

Max/MSP is a visual programming language for music and multimedia. The visual part means that instead of representing logic using text and grammar, Max uses blocks and connections. The multimedia part means that Max is especially well suited for working with audio, video and data streams, making it perfect for reactive installations, algorithmic art and all kinds of other stuff. 

This class will assume absolutely no experience with Max whatsoever, except for all the previous classes. You can find example patches from the previous classes (as well as more information) at https://noisebridge.net/wiki/Noise~_Wednesday.

We'll start with getting Max downloaded and installed, and from there I'll move straight to building basic patchers with Max. We can talk about generating simple algorithmic music, sampling recorded sound, working with live video, and whatever else people might be interested in.

If you plan on attending then it would be great if you could write me just to let me know you're coming. Include, if you would, your name, a little bit about yourself and why you're interested in Max. And if there's something you'd like to see covered, let me know about that as well. Or, if you already know about Max and you'd like to participate in leading the class, that would be great as well. I could certainly use the help.

----- END SPIEL OH SO THAT'S A MAX -----

Looking forward,
-S
