Learn how to use Cycling 74's Max 8 software to compose and perform original musical compositions, and create sonic, audiovisual and interactive sound art. You will gain the skills to create and customise Max “patches”, understand the basics of digital audio signal processing, and develop the skills to modify and customise existing patches and Max for Live devices.
This is brand new 10 week programme designed to help you get to grips with Max 8. Whether you're a composer, artist, educator, performer, dancer, or anyone seeking expert guidance in this software then this is great starting point. The course is designed for beginners and there are no prerequisites but any experience with digital audio workstations (DAWs, eg ProTools, Logic, Cubase), synthesisers, music theory, or computer programming will be beneficial, although by no means essential.
Why study this course?
• Get to grips with the Max environment
• Create your own unique digital musical instrument
• Build your own customised audio effects
• Escape the restraints of tonality and regular tempo (no more four-to-the-floor!)
• Control your new instrument with any hardware controller
