Darwin Grosse Appreciation Post


    May 15 2022 | 3:52 pm
    Hi everyone,
    I listened today to what is to be Darwin Grosse's last episode of his Art + Music + Technology podcast. Darwin has over the years been very active here on the forums and elsewhere, and has made my experience learning about Max and music technology as a whole all the better.
    His podcast can be found at https://artmusictech.libsyn.com (and on different podcasting platforms), and his 20 Objects curriculum is a joy http://darwingrosse.com/20Objects/index.html for those wishing to see Max in a new light.
    Once again, I'd just like to take this opportunity to give my thanks and express my appreciation for someone who has done so much for so many of us here.
    Thanks.

      Darwin's helpful and highly intelligent posts have got me out of a rut on multiple occasions. Much respect for his talent and generosity.

      I feel compelled to reach out and express my sorrow for the loss of Darwin. Other than being an amazing programmer, educator, and synthesist, he was a truly integrated and vital member of the electronic music community. Between his audio podcast (a+m+t), video tutorials/vlogs, and all of the amazing work he did for C74, he's given SO much to the field. How very sincere and genuine he was. Darwin, you will be so very missed!! My deepest condolences to his friends and colleagues at Cycling.

      To say that he was an inspiration is truly too understated.
      He defined the direction of a lot of people in this field, and infused the scene with a great deal of reflection.
      I will truly miss his presence.

      Such a sad news to hear. Darwin, thank you. For what you did, created and shared. For your curiosity and for your contribution. You are already missed.

      Darwin was completely off my radar before this thread.....
      This thread led me to his podcasts which I have been enjoying * immensely * Will be moving onto his tutorials next.
      I think he still has much to teach us
      Thanks Darwin

      I'm so sad to hear that he has died. Thank you for everything, Darwin! Made me want to delve into programming myself. RIP.
