Max in Brussels

Slight off topic

Are there many of you using max/msp/jitter in the Brussels(ish) area?

I’m at least one. And as far as I know some 5 institutions are teaching
max/msp/jitter in the larger Brussels(ish) area. So that makes for
quite a few people, at different degrees of experience.

ah that’s us : )

do drop by, opening of our new space the 28th.
i dont know what you do, but if you’re working on something, we’d be
glad to hear about it.
just a chat is fine too of course (beer is compulsary).
okno, imal and foam are in the same compound btw, with other orgs at
walking distance. it’s like “thursday, this must be belgium” for
media artists ; )

brussels is great, i think you’ll like it…

so maybe we’ll see eachother in non-unicode soon.

cheers!

I forgot all about the f0am folks, although we did some bits of work
together a couple of years ago.

What is it with four-letter project names? Perhaps they’re all run by
old-school Macintosh programmers. (You’d better use your first name,
Pere…!)

My first name is the bane of my life!…its “Peter” in Catalan though
someone pointed out to me (in Brussels) they thought I was a priest or
something “Father Josep”…Pere Josep which is a very normal Catalan
name. In the UK kids think I sound like a fruit. In Barcelonian
Catalan it also sounds like the same fruit but in Spanish, So it is a
no win situation, but I have a plan. There’s a story about Dweezil
Zappa being mocked at school because of his name so he changed it to
Fred and they took the mickey out of that one too, so he changed it
back to Dweezil. P

I like that idea. I visited Imal’s new space, it’s definitely a perfect environment for informal meetings. So?

Although I don’t live in Brussels, I would like to be on your list. My
daughter lives in Luxembourg so I fly into Brussels several times a year to
visit her.

sure!
contact me all those interested – maybe off this list – to discuss
about how we could set such informal max/pd meetings;
check also our new rendez-vous web site, http://www.imal.org/rendez-vous
we are open to add other types of events.

Nope, there was just a line break in the URI:

http://www.imal.org/rendez-vous/

For those who are interested in a Max / Pure Data user group with get-
togethers in Brussels (and maybe a mailing list also…) stay tuned.
we are working on it, announcements to come.

Okay, looks great!
Energy patchers in brussels.
Our – iMAL – space should be good for a meeting like that.
I am the doorkeeper and maybe the barkeeper.

We have to discuss that, but maybe better not on the mailinglist because this is off topic?!
How and where do we discuss this?

Grzz,

p.s. imal has a bar

It seems like there is enough for us to create some kind of mailing
list/group or would this be a burden as someone would have to
administrate it (?), I have no experience of this kind of thing. any
suggestions?

Am so glad I asked that first question, never expected the response.

All we need now is an abstraction to fix those clouds , any takers?

To add on that, I come by pretty often on my rides between Paris and
Berlin. Seems Brussels is the center of the European max world…

Dear Pure Data and Max programmers,

A new users group is being set up in Brussels for those interested in
Max and Pd.

Yves Bernard of iMAL has kindly set up a mailing list to further this
end, more info is here:

http://www.imal.org/mailman/listinfo/bbang

Anyone is welcome to subscribe and those interested in participating
in this group are highly encouraged to do so.
Pd and Max enthusiasts from within the surrounding high-speed rail
neighbourhood are especially welcome.

We are looking towards planning a first meeting sometime before the
end of this year with following meetings happening approximately
monthly.

best regards,
Andrew Brouse
