Max- and Arduino-powered interactive music garden
Many of us at Cycling ’74 are gardening enthusiasts. When this stunning project was brought to our attention, two of our favorite worlds came together. Wish we could be there to see and hear it in person. Thanks for sharing, OFL Architecture! 1:38 shows a glimpse of their application built in Max.
An Interview with Julien Bayle
Learn how he uses custom hardware, Arduino, Ableton Live and Max to create his work.
The new Arduino Due is available!
The new Arduino Due The long-awaited Arduino Due is now available. This device, featuring an Atmel SAM3X8E ARM Cortex-M3 CPU, is a huge generational leap for the Arduino platform. Using the same footprint as the Arduino Mega, the Due is faster, has more memory and more I/O than any previous Arduino, and puts it on a [...]
Sonic Robots – A M4L controlled robotic drum machine.
Behold! The MR-808 mechanical drum robot! Moritz Simon Geist has built a (giant) robotic version of the classic Roland 808 drum machine using Max for Live, Arduino, and a heap of solenoids. From his website: “I see hacking – in this case music hacking – as a form of anti-passiveness, through which I think the individual [...]
Arduino-based urban aquaponics in Oakland
Deep in Cycling 74′s backyard, Eric Maundu is doing wonderful things with an Arduino controlled hydroponic plant growing system. The possibilities for our tools are endless! More info here.
Science Fair Projects, Part 3
At the 2011 Expo '74, some Max users exhibited their electronic experiments.
An Interview with Valérie Lamontagne
Valérie Lamontagne is a digital media artist, designer, theorist and curator based in Montréal, Canada researching techno-artistic frameworks that combine human/nonhuman subjects. She recently used Max/MSP in a performance based on the Charles Perrault fairy tale “Peau d’Âne.”
