LEMURplex Fall Classes Begin September 25th

The first session of Fall classes at LEMURplex covers basic skills in
electronics and Max/MSP/Jitter. Second-session classes covering more
advanced skills and other aspects of art and technology will be
announced shortly.

and to register.

Mondays, September 25, October 2 & October 16, 6:30-9:30 pm
Cycling ’74 Jitter
Instructor: Joshua Goldberg

This is a three-session introduction to Jitter, Cycling ’74′s matrix
dataset processing environment. On a very prosaic level, Jitter can
be used to build custom-tailored VJ applications, but even the most
cursory exploration demonstrates that this tool is capable of so much
more. Our class will cover those prosaic examinations, move into the
much more exciting realms of 3D OpenGL visualization and computer
vision techniques, and culminate in an exploration of the arcane
realms of synesthesia and visual music.

A basic familiarity with the Max programming paradigm is greatly
encouraged; this will be a very exciting, very fast-paced course.
However, smart and flexible people may be able to pick up the basics
as we go along.
Tuesdays, September 26, October 3 & October 10, 6:30-9:30 pm
A Multifaceted, Multimedia Approach
Instructor: Dana Karwas

This class will focus on the basics of Max/MSP and is intended for
anyone interested in incorporating Max/MSP into his or her work. No
prior experience with Max/MSP/Jitter or computer programming is
required. The class will feature an overview of digital sound
processing, sampling, basic digital sound synthesis, software
techniques for communicating with external devices, and interfacing
with larger physical and aural environments. The structure of the
class will follow a two-fold approach, aiming to provide a sufficient
level of programming skills while emphasizing concept by
deconstructing representative real word examples.
Wednesdays, September 27, October 4 & October 11, 6:30-9:30 pm
Basic Circuitry for Arts & Multimedia
Instructor: Michael Ang

This class is designed as a practical introduction to understanding
electronics and circuit design. In this course, students will learn
the principles of electronics and how to incorporate basic circuits
into their projects and art. Subjects covered will include electronic
components, symbols and schematics, electricity flow, making
connections, testing, troubleshooting, hacking cheap consumer items,
a brief intro to microcontrollers and more. By the end of this course
students will feel comfortable with basic circuits, building kits,
and have inspiration for future exploration. No previous knowledge of
electronics is assumed.
Thursdays, September 28, October 5 & October 12, 6:30-9:30 pm
Audio Processing in MSP
Instructor: Luke DuBois

This class will focus on MSP, a set of audio and signal processing
extensions to the Max language that allow for the creation of
software audio synthesizers, samplers, and effects processors that
work in real time. The class will begin with an overview of audio
signal processing theory, moving into different basic types of
synthesizer design and sampler creation. Issues such as MIDI control,
polyphony management, and multi-channel audio will be covered, as
will basic digital filter theory and audio processing basics.
