Programming with Max – Beginner workshop

Max is a programming language based on a graphical interface that connects sound synthesis, sampling, video and Open GL 3-D graphics, MIDI, network-communication, sensors and more. Based on a concept similar to modular synthesizers Max is relatively easy to learn and equally suitable for both small and complex projects.

This workshop will focus on the music making possibilities of Max but can include working with visuals by wish of the participants. It will give an introduction to the concept of Max and show strategies for how to approach and solve problems common to beginners. No prior knowledge of Max or programming is required.
