This workshop is suitable for visual artists, sculptors, dancers, performers and
students interested in experimenting with visual interactive environments.
About the Workshop
MAX/MSP is an application specially designed for interactive works such
as installations and performances with music and video in real time. It can
be connected to Arduino interfaces, a wide variety of controllers,
sensors and MIDI controllers and it is relatively easy to learn. It includes different
environments, such as MSP (for real time audio) and Jitter (for real time video).
The workshop gives an introduction to the software and, in particular, about
the use of Jitter in interactive environments such as installations or dance pieces,
with the aid of MIDI controllers, tracking systems and/or body sensors. The
workshop also includes an overview of Jitter objects, and the design of
patchers and user-interfaces.
