Max for Ableton Users

This is an exciting time for electronically produced sounds because the lines between instrument, environment, gesture, and performance are all mixing into a pumping aural cocktail. In these workshops you will learn basic approaches and techniques used to create interactive and generative sonic experiences. This is ideal for participants looking to create interactive audio installations or learn some nifty tricks to enhance their audio performances with technology.

 

Part 1: Introduction to Max For Live and MSP

Interfacing Arduino and Max 7

Custom electronics allows you to create unique interfaces and experiences for your interactive installations. Learn how to approach electronics projects from a graphical flow programming approach. Connect switches and sensors to Audio and Video, or control output like LED's based off of audio and video events!

Materials: We'll loan you an Arduino for the workshop, which you're welcome to purchase at the end of the workshop if you like.

Wearables and Collaborative Performance

In this full-day workshop you will learn to use Bluetooth and Arduino (in the form of the LightBlue Bean) as well as various body sensors to create generative designs through collaborative performance. You will get your feet wet with writing Arduino code, reading and managing sensor data, sending wireless messages and interfacing with Processing.  You'll learn to think conceptually about the body and its relationship to time, space, and technology.

Intro to Interactive Art with Max 7

Max 7 is a perfect tool for artists learning to create interactive installations, particularly those which use camera or audio input. It's a graphical approach to programming, in which artists create "patches" by visually connecting objects which represent inputs, outputs and functions, rather than typing out lines of code.

We're going to learn how to use this powerful tool to create an interactive video piece!
