Sam's European junket continues, so Geoff will once again take the helm.
This week, we step into a Realm of Illusions, and implement the endless
glissando a la Risset, AKA the Shepard Tone.
Details on the wiki <https://noisebridge.net/wiki/Noise~_Wednesday>.
Is your computer currently usable? When you type the letter 'k', does the
'k' character appear on the screen? Are the images in front of you
right-side up? Are your internal speakers currently silent, as opposed to
emitting a deafening, 18kHz sine tone?
Don't worry, There is hope. Enter Max/MSP--the programming language of the
future. Invented by the French for the purpose of challenging the dialectic
between man and machine and for confusing the general public, Max makes it
easy to connect input to output in a rapid, whimsical and experimental
manner. Programming in Max is as simple as hooking objects together using
virtual connections called patchcords. Those patchcords can carry
instructions, streaming data, sound, video or just about anything else, so
it's easy to use Max to explore unexpected possibilities. You want to use
Max to drive LED's <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKlqlG3ev70>? Or maybe
to make your face dance <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLAma-lrJRM>? Max
can do basically anything. Something is a proper subset of anything.
Therefore, if you want to do something, Max can probably help.
Noise~ covers the basics, from building a simple patch all the way through
tackling algorithmic composition and working with live video. The first
class will be targeted at total beginners and will begin at the absolute
beginning: downloading Max, opening a patcher and making something happen.
>From there, as long as there is interest there will be classes.
