Working Language



Max/MSP/Jitter is a visual programming language for music and multimedia developed and maintained by San Francisco-based software company Cycling '74. Over its more than thirty-year history, it has been used by composers, performers, software designers, researchers, and artists to create recordings, performances, and installations. Because of this extensible design, which simultaneously represents both the program's structure and its graphical user interface (GUI), Max has been described as the lingua francafor developing interactive music performance software..

The worksop covers both MAX/MSP Sounds and Jitter Visual (both from introduction to basic methods).

 Day 1 will cover five different kind of patches for basic Method of sound/Visual performance and explain how to make together Patches.
Day 2eval explains how to arrange work with those patches, your own sound files and videos.
Day 3 gives for every participant an opportunity to create a performance (5-10 min.) performance (5-10 min)

The workshop is developed for beginners who have not worked with the programme before but all mid-level users are welcome, too. During the workshop Tatsuru Arai presents his work and also explains his methods in composing.
