Max/MSP/Jitter is an extraordinary tool to help you speak in the language of your audio and visual signals, and let them speak to each other. It’s used in the creation of concerts, video art installations, and other media applications.
In this free workshop presented by our guests, Adam Rokhsar and Hans Tammen from the NYC media center Harvestworks, you’ll be introduced to some of the possibilities.
Want to manipulate the speed of a video clip with a midi signal? Or build beats in a song by analyzing the motion in a live video feed? Visual programming languages, which also include Pure Data, Processing, and VVVV, make such projects accessible.
This workshop will provide a foundation for any of these software options, which are often used in conjunction with Arduino or Ableton Live.
If this workshop sounds totally exotic to you, then you’d dig it the most. Bring a laptop with the Max demo on it, or just come to listen.
If you’re already into projects of this nature, Adam and Hans will take your questions and consult on your projects. The experience will be rewarding for artists, programmers, and everyone in between. We’re proud to be presenting this in association with the Myers School of Art’s Collider Exhibit Series, which has hosted some extraordinary lectures of this nature, and has Collider3: Transform, scheduled for March.
