Followed will be a general question & answer session, with the remainder of the clinic focused on more one-on-one patcher troubleshooting.
Participants are invited to email Aram Shelton [settled] with any questions and/or topics to be covered: firstname.lastname@example.org

This ongoing clinic is open to all levels and gives the opportunity for feedback and troubleshooting in a supportive environment with an experienced technician. Each month the Clinic begins with a brief opening presentation on the development, customization and user control of patches built in Max/MSP, followed by question and answers by the participants for the remainder of the session. Artists will be invited to present their projects to the entire group for a back and forth exchange of ideas.
