I’m currently in the middle of working on the main project for my Masters Degree.
I’m using Max/MSP and although i’m not an accomplsihed user, i have been using it for a while now and i’m learning all the time. quality program.
I’m studying an MSc in Advanced Music Production and as i am coming towards the end of my studies i have a major project to complete.
The project aims to produce an interface and patch to allow the development of a non-standard input to ultimately control/manipulate the features of a synthesiser instrument, in a bid to produce a musical sequence.
The non-standard input will be in the form of text (maybe images).
This would enable a user of no musical talent or just someone with a keen interest to produce a paragraph or sentence of text to be inputted into the patch. The aim is to then use that input to produce a musical sequence.
I’m not going to get into it here (otherwise this will be a long message!), but i’m sure that this would be a fairly feasible proposal, given the versatility of the Max/MSP environment.
The reason i have posted here is to pickle the minds of the Max community to see if everybody has any links or information that may bear any relevance towards this.
