Interactive Installations in Max 7 (series): Intro to Max 7

This is the first in a three-part workshop series on Max 7 taking place at InterAccess during April: 18 (Intro to Max 7), April 25 (Fundamentals for Audio Projects), and May 2 (Detecting Movement with Real-Time Video). Sign up for the full series, or select one or two workshops to support your creative practice.

Intro to Max 7

Max 7 is a visual programming environment. In this workshop you will learn the ins and outs of the Max 7 environment as well as some universal concepts at the core of most programming languages (and electronics). To do this, we will cover the basics of manipulating both pre-recorded and live video feeds in real-time!

The instructor will provide you with learning materials and patches necessary to start working with Max 7.

Interactive Installations in Max 7 (Series)

In this workshop series you will learn to use the Max 7 programming environment to manipulate live video feeds in real-time, create sound-reactive works, and learn techniques to initiate interactive events.

We recommend Intro to Max 7 if you have not used Max 7 before, or if you want to refresh your skills.

Intro-level skills are required in order to register for the second and third workshops in this series, Fundamentals for Audio Projects and Detecting Movement With Real-Time Video, as well as all Max 7 courses offered in 2016. If you have not taken Intro to Max with IA in the past, Hilary Martin, Interim Education Manager, will contact you before we confirm your registration for courses beyond the Intro level.
