[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.
    Schedule (Mon-Fri) 10am-12pm: Beginning/Intermediate Max/MSP Programming 12-1pm: Lunch 1-3pm: Beginning/Intermediate Lab 3-5pm: Open Lab/Special Topics (topics will include Max for Live, gestural controllers and other topics TBA) 5-6pm: Dinner Break 6-9pm: Advanced Max/MSP Programming
    NOTE: Participants are required to bring their own laptops with the latest version of Max/MSP 6 already installed and running. (Mac OSX or Windows XP/Vista/7) Jitter is optional, but recommend for students interested in video processing. Please bring a set of headphones to use during the lab. Also, participants are strongly advised to have gone through the Max, MSP, and Jitter (if applicable) tutorials before the workshop.
