Does anyone know of any max/msp meet up groups in London?

cheers.

Jul 06 2010 | 12:36 am

I don’t but I live in SE7 and would be interested if anyone knows of anything already running.

Hi, I live in N16, but if there were a few more of us, maybe we could meet up in the centre of town – a room above a pub for instance ? – there are lots of those… or maybe the ICA – there’s not much going on there.

Hey.

I’m also in N16, would be interested in meeting up. maybe get some projects going.

cheers.

I’m E8 – would be cool.

m

Aug 27 2010 | 2:31 am

I don’t live in London, but I would be willing to come in to meet up.

Aug 27 2010 | 6:41 am

Wait a minute, I live in N16. Someone been tampering with our water supply?

Aug 27 2010 | 10:41 am

I live in SE23 and work in SE1, cool idea !

Aug 27 2010 | 10:56 am

I live out in Maidenhead but would be interested anyway.

Aug 27 2010 | 1:06 pm

Blimey N16,E8,SE1 – there’s only one place for the Ermine Street Max/Msp legion – Cafe OTO.

Aug 28 2010 | 12:55 am

up in NW2, but Cafe Oto’s a great idea…

Aug 28 2010 | 3:15 pm

With the overground nearby I can do it ! So when is that first meeting ?

Sep 01 2010 | 2:12 pm

I’m in for Cafe OTO, do they let you hire out the space.
It would be cool for some performances but I’m also interested in development, iphone/ ipad /stand alone etc.
I’m sure there has to be a room somewhere to just get together.

any ideas?

also the sooner the better.

Sep 01 2010 | 2:15 pm

sounds like fun – if we contact a Starbucks they normally let you have a meeting there. Could be an option.

m

Sep 02 2010 | 12:21 am

Haha I can see it now, everyone get your macs out – we’re in Starbucks!

How is life in London anyway Matt? You seem remarkably social compared to your undergrad self. I can’t recall any Max meetings, just mailouts about your jokerap.

Sep 02 2010 | 12:26 am

Mike – can’t place your face. and there’s nothing remarkable about my sociality

Sep 02 2010 | 11:42 am

Although Cafe Oto is a nice idea, the cafe is only open until 17:30 if there’s a gig on later (which there usually is), so unless anyone wants to meet there on a weekend, perhaps we should seek an alternative. There are other cafes in that area which could accommodate, but as I said in an earlier post there are hundred of pubs all over London with upstairs rooms or just a quiet downstairs. Are we all agreed on Dalston ? – it’s got character cos it doesn’t have a Starbucks (yet)…
Des

Sep 02 2010 | 11:47 am

Thread hijack!

erm, I live in Belfast, and I’m really envious of you guys on this thread……any Maxers near me???

Sep 02 2010 | 11:50 am

17:30 is not very good – do you think it would be better to be a little central. Dalston is not the most *desirable* place in the east ; )

@Desmond, Character? we’ll all be starring at screens – Starbucks has nice coffee : )

Oct 03 2010 | 10:09 pm

hi, is there still some interest in a max group meeting?

there’s a pub near me in central london with many close tubes and an upstairs room. I’ve seen a few monthly "scaledown" gigs there with interesting experimental music and sound works.

random pic http://www.theorchestrapit.com/node/1257

i could enquire on the price if there’s still some interest (i know the owner so possibly it won’t be a lot)

the pub is the king and queen http://www.fancyapint.com/pubs/pub10.php

Oct 04 2010 | 3:35 am

Such a very amazing link!
Thanks you for the post.

I work late most weekday evenings but I would definitely be up for some sort of gathering. My max-related activities have been on hold for a while and I need a kick in the right direction. I’ll be following this thread to see if anything works out!

lh

Oct 06 2010 | 7:49 am

Fitzrovia is even more desirable than Dalston – sounds great – shall we try and agree on a weekday evening ?

Des

Oct 06 2010 | 11:31 pm

i had a pint in the king and queen tonight and got a name to call tomorrow from the barman.

apparently if you dont want the little bar open upstairs then there is just a "small donation" to make …. i’ll find out tomorrow what that means …. what? of course we can still take drinks upstairs, stupid!

2 things … I’m easy anytime but I wonder if weekends may be better for some people?
plus .. is it possible to PM people on this forum as I wonder if some people above have forgotten about this thread.

Oct 07 2010 | 11:17 pm

nice one ross –

weekend or weekday, i’m easy. people haven’t really requested one way or the other yet. that’s been the whole problem with this thread… i say plump for something and set it up! let us all know how the phone call goes.

dunno about PMing but if people keep posting here it’ll bump the thread up and people will see it if they’re interested.

Oct 08 2010 | 1:22 pm

Hi all, ok, i’ve bit the bullet cos it’s a good deal and central.
Max/msp London meeting at

King & Queen
1st floor Functions room
1 Foley Street
London W1W 6DL

Thurs 21st October from 7pm

It’s £1 a person which goes to charity

Please come along and get involved.

I’m rushing out but I think I’ll make a new thread when I get back with a proper title.

ross

Oct 08 2010 | 11:26 pm

… and i probably can’t make that. should have kept quiet eh.
have fun folks

Oct 09 2010 | 2:47 pm

What time do you expect to be there until? I don’t get out of work in Shoreditch until 9pm but I might still pop down after if people will still be around.

lh

Oct 10 2010 | 3:39 am

Hi
Great that this is going ahead. Unfortunatly for me I can’t make thursday eves. However I will keep an eye out for the next one. I hope you all have fun.
cheers
jamie

Oct 11 2010 | 1:46 pm

ok – seeing as the 3 interested respondents have a problem with 7pm Thurday 21st Oct I’d like to suggest that you guys list the days of the following week that you can attend and if there’s a better opportunity I’ll try to change it.

so zh, Luke Hll and zenke (and anyone else who’s interested) … what evenings from 25th to 29th October would suit you best?

ross


yas
Oct 11 2010 | 2:18 pm

I’m N16 also, up for that, and available all those dates, as far as i know, so count me in!

yas

Oct 11 2010 | 2:40 pm

nice one yas

Oct 11 2010 | 9:30 pm

I hadn’t seen this – I’m up for coming along – 25th & 26th are fine for me – the rest of the week I won’t know until the actual day.


zh
Oct 13 2010 | 8:00 am

i can’t make it that whole week, so don’t worry.


yas
Oct 18 2010 | 3:24 pm

any news?

Oct 18 2010 | 8:44 pm

hi again
been having some difficulty with the booking as the guy i was dealing with has gone on holiday ….
finally got to see the reservation book last night in the pub …

I’ve cancelled thursday as it was problematic and the next week is booked up, so the next free day is Fri 5th November.

Can you interested guys make that day?


yas
Oct 21 2010 | 4:50 pm

hell yeah

Oct 21 2010 | 10:54 pm

What time will they kick you out?

Oct 24 2010 | 5:00 pm

hi, not wanting to book an entire floor for 3 people, I’ve had another idea.
As Luke works in Shoreditch why don’t we meet in Bar Prague on a quiet evening – mon tue or wed. They have free internet access, coffee and beer! and are open till midnight.

6 Kingsland Road, Shoreditch, London E2 8AA
020 7739 9110

Tube:
Hoxton Station (0.6 km)
Nearby stations:
Hackney Downs Station (1.0 km)

can you guys meet on Mon, tue or wed next week? (1st – 3rd Nov)

ross

Oct 25 2010 | 10:46 am

I will still try to get along – I’m working in Bexley all that week, but there must be trains or tubes into London!

David

Well done Ross! Will do my best to be there.

Oct 31 2010 | 3:12 pm

Nov 01 2010 | 2:44 pm

Nice of London Underground to arrange a tube strike from Tuesday evening, just for us.

Nov 01 2010 | 2:58 pm

crap! … I can still make it by cycle, or bus if it’s raining … but what about you others?

Nov 02 2010 | 10:37 am

I think the Overground is unaffected, so I should be OK.


yas
Nov 05 2010 | 2:40 pm

Nov 05 2010 | 11:41 pm

Same here guys, let me know if/when there is a next time! Extra hours at work are killing me but even Shakespeare got to get paid!

Nov 14 2010 | 11:49 pm

yes, probably 1st december… but I need confirmation from the pub.
I’ll probably know tomorrow or tuesday

Nov 16 2010 | 1:27 pm

great thread, only just discovered!
I’ll even be in London on 1st December, is it still going ahead as (quasi) planned??

…also, has the facebook page been started yet; just need the name of it if possible … cheers!

Nov 16 2010 | 1:43 pm

confirmed!

I’m pulling my hair out over facebook at this very moment … Groups or Pages – that is the question.
I see some peoples Groups that look like Pages – which I want as I can’t seem to get the group information to display on the front page of the group (or anywhere in fact)!! blah

so at the moment there is a Group AND a Page – one will disappear when i’ve sussed it out. Feel free to join them both ;- …. that’s if you CAN join a page (another confusion) …

can someone do me a small favour please … go to the facebook London max/MSP Users Group

http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_155069101204145&ap=1

and tell me if the info about the group, the date for the first meeting, pub address etc is there?

I'm wondering if it's because i'm the admin of the group that the page looks different from other peoples groups.
I seem to need to go into "group edit" to see the info.

F**k me!! I can’t even work the cycling forum now!!

I wanted to add this before i posted:-

The two pics above are to show how my group looks wrong. The top one is good … it has the group description on the left, and further down group members.

Mine doesn’t show any of that although I have entered all the info. Weird as I have previously made a group with no problems at all.

Nov 16 2010 | 9:48 pm

looks fine from where i’m at Ross… cya on the 1st hopefully (zh = nick janaway just joined)

Nov 17 2010 | 3:58 pm

I wish there some Welsh Maxers out there so I could meet up with them :( hoping to move up to Hertfordshire for my Masters next Summer so hopefully this group will be still going strong in Summer :)

Nov 18 2010 | 1:52 am

hooray, just joined the fb page,
all info about venue & date is clear to read.
Looking forward to the 1st, & hope I can make it!

Nov 18 2010 | 6:13 pm

I don’t know any Maxers in Wales, although I’ve been touring a Max-based performance piece over there over the last year. (We made it in Aberystwyth and it’s been shown in Cardiff/Caerdydd and Carmarthen/Caerfyrddin, and is going to Bangor next year).

Hertfordshire’s a good place for learning Max – I teach there…!

Nov 18 2010 | 9:13 pm

@nick do you teach the Audio Programming course? Really want to go down that route when I graduate, is it compulsory to have a programming background? I know simple c++ Pascal and Basic but only the simple stuff and I would style class myself as a learner of Max built a few working patches but still need to gain sufficient knowledge of the language.

Nov 19 2010 | 10:37 am

Last year I was teaching audio/visual integration: interactive systems design with both MaxMSP and Jitter.
