You know, to talk about Max and stuff.</div><div><p>Now that we're all Max experts, it's time for us to put on a concert.
This is, after all, what people do when they become recognized and
celebrated geniuses in their respective fields: they invent some kind of
spectacle to cement for all eternity the scope of their dominion over
their medium. Granted, we've only been messing with Max for a couple
months or so, but I think we're close enough.
</p><p>I'd like for everyone involved to put together a performance
piece of at least three minutes. That piece can have audio or visual or
even sculptural elements to it. It can sound good or bad or neither. It
doesn't even actually have to use Max. The only rule is that it must
have a live component. You, the composer, have to actually shape the
evolution of the piece in some way as it goes on. No pre-recorded music.
</p><p>We'll be talking more about materials and sharing inspiration in
the classes leading up to the performance. I'll also be fleshing out
more exactly the requirements for each piece. </p><div>Note, if you're reading this email, haven't been coming to classes but still want to perform, then that's cool too. You should come and hang out anyway.</div></div><div><br></div><div>Looking forward,</div><div>-S</div></body></html>
