Artists using Max

Feb 11 2011 | 11:04 pm


I am writing an essay as part of my studies into artists that use MaxMSP, whether that be for live performance, installations, experiments, development etc.

Can anyone give me some examples of this? i would love to discuss this topic here.

Currently im looking into Stretta, Autechre, and Monolake.

Thanks for your time.

A few of the guys and gals on the Monome Forum are maxers to some degree. Perhaps scout around there for some links to portfolios and videos etc.

Can I bump this thread to ask if there are any recent artists who have been using Max extensively? I’ve been listening to Holly Herndon recently, and I’ve been surprised that Max isn’t garnering more prominent mentions these days… though, I do partially blame modern music journalists for being more focused on the mystique of music than the process of it.
Any other names worth checking out in any genre?

@Caligula Autechre’s new album is 5 discs and 4+ hours long, and really showcases their thorough working knowledge of Max. They also released 9 separate live recordings last year, and each one features the same material but with algorithmically-generated variations

If you know Holly Herndon then you’re probably already familiar with Autechre though…
