Just thought I’d put a brief message up here: I’ve just moved to Paris and have some time on my hands for the next few months, so thought I might hunt out potential collaborators for some open ended, not-too-serious improvisation sessions. I’m especially interesting in networking some machines and running Osc data between them.
As for myself, I’m initially from Australia, and have been using Max/MSP for almost two years now (although I had a grudging history with Supercollider before that) and I mostly use a cheap and slightly dodgy non-name game controller to interface with MSP.
Some of my odds and ends can be found here: http://tiny.cc/allwnop
and if you are interested, feel free to drop me a message!
Yes, your in there country you have to speak their language – that’s the French attitude. They do appreciate the effort though and most will listen and correct you if you persistently try to converse in French. The best thing to do is (if your there for the foreseeable future) throw yourself into something where you have to speak French, a job, an ma, something like that and you’ll pick it up quickly – tv helps a lot as well even if your not a tv fan it’ll give you the everyday words.
Anyway let me know if you find something / are performing or see it advertised as I’ll be in Paris for a week over Easter so keeping an eye out for things to go to.
