[ANN] CNMAT in Boston - Max/MSP/Jitter Summer Workshops


    Jul 23 2012 | 1:01 am
    For the first time, CNMAT (the UC Berkeley Center for New Music & Audio
    Technologies) presents its popular intensive and immersive Max/MSP
    summer workshop in Boston! Just like the workshop hosted in Berkeley
    each summer, the workshop is geared towards artists, musicians,
    interface designers, and anyone wanting to improve their skills with
    Max/MSP/Jitter or learn from scratch. This year's course will take
    advantage of the great new features that Max 6 has to offer, so if you
    are looking to get up to speed with the latest version of Max, this is
    the place to be. The course will be taught by programmers and artists
    with a great deal of experience both using and teaching the software. By
    the end of the workshop, students should be able to construct
    sophisticated, robust patches.
    As always, we try to keep our workshop fees as reasonable as possible.
    In the past, the morning and evening sessions were priced separately and
    would cost over $1000 combined. This workshop combines both for $750.
