Max / MSP is a graphic programming environment for music, audio and multimedia applications. This program was developed in the mid-eighties at IRCAM by Miller Puckette and subsequently implemented by David Zicarelli and Cycling’74, (the company that sells it since 1997). There are many professionals who use this program, creating customized tools for composition, sound design, live performances and audiovisual installations.
Max is used for composition, creation and design of interactive programs with music and multimedia. It has much flexibility for interaction with a variety of media, protocols and interfaces.
This workshop presents the main objectives of making contact with the user-level program and assimilation of basic concepts of programming in that environment applied to the interaction with acoustic i digital instruments.
At the end of the workshop, the participants will develop a customized project that will serve, as a practice, for an improvisation session.
