    Special Guests include John Chowning, David Wessel and David Zicarelli.

    CNMAT presents our intensive and immersive summer workshop for artists, musicians, interface designers, and anyone wanting to improve their skills with Max/MSP or learn from scratch. This year’s course will take advantage of the great features that Max 6 has to offer, including lectures, demos, and hands-on lab time, so if you are looking to get up to speed with the latest version of Max, this is the place to be. The course will be taught by programmers and artists with a great deal of experience both using and teaching the software. By the end of the workshop, students should be able to construct sophisticated, robust patches.

    Max/MSP/Jitter Day+Night School - July 21-25, 2014, 10AM-9PM This intensive week of hands-on classes covers a wide variety of topics related to Max/MSP programming and will make use of the latest features of Max 6. Instructors: John MacCallum, Jeff Lubow, Adrian Freed and other experienced teachers Fee: $750

    The classes each day will consist of two lectures separated by lab sessions where the students will receive one-on-one attention from the instructors and assistants. All students, regardless of their skill level, are encouraged to attend all of the sessions throughout the day.

    The schedule will be as follows: Monday through Friday, July 21-25, 2014
    Each day: 10am-12pm: Beginning/Intermediate Max/MSP Programming 12-1pm: Lunch 1-3pm: Beginning/Intermediate Lab 3-5pm: Open Lab/Special Topics 5-6pm: Dinner Break 6-9pm: Advanced Max/MSP Programming

    NOTE: Participants are required to bring their own laptops with the latest version of Max/MSP 6 already installed and running (Mac OSX or Windows 7/8).

Also, participants are strongly advised to have gone through the Max, MSP, and Jitter (if applicable) tutorials before the workshop. Pricing: As always, we try to keep our workshop fees as reasonable as possible. In the past, the morning and evening sessions were priced separately and would cost over $1000 combined. We offer both for $750.

  • Out of curiosity, what do housing options look like in the area that week?

  • Update: We’ll be hosting David Zicarelli + John Chowning this year, along with a slew of local lecturers. Very excited.
    Yes, there are still plenty of spaces left, folks!

  • @GreaterThanZero: Please contact Richard Andrews for more information regarding housing. There are always decent options in the area this time of year, and we can help steer you in the right direction.
