For this book review, I’d like to bring not one, but two books to your attention, both of which are by the same author – an author you’ve already encountered: Curtis Roads. One of them is relatively new, and the other falls into my personal list of “must have” texts.
Doing book reviews for a newsletter has turned out to be a more subtle practice than I initially expected.
Alessandro Cipriani & Maurizio Giri (one of the most active Max-focused writing units around), introduced the first volume of their ‘Electronic Music and Sound Design’ series a few years ago - first in Italian, and then English translations by David Stutz, followed a bit later by a second volume.
Paul Théberge has taken on a pretty hefty job: documenting the history and direction of music-making and music-consuming technology.
Two remarkable new books featuring Max have just been published that should be a part of any serious student’s collection. First, volume 2 of Electronic Music and Sound Design by Alessandro Cipriani and Maurizio Giri continues the first volume’s exploration of audio applications of Max/MSP through hundreds of interactive examples.
Francisco Colasanto, who works as assistant director at Centro Mexicano para la Música y las Artes Sonoras (CMMAS) in Morelia, Mexico, has released the first two modules of a new ebook about Max/MSP on the center's web site CMMAS.org.
