Jessica Ekomane – Intro to music & sound making in Max
Berlin based composer Jessica Ekomane hosts this short introductory workshop focused on music making with Max. The session will give an introduction to elementary skills for working with sound synthesis in the music programming software Max/MSP, in the context of experimental electronic music performances and sound art. With the goal of demystifying the interface and unlocking the freedom needed for experimentation, we’ll cover the very basics of the software interface logic and how to start creating your own sounds. Max/MSP is a music programming environment that allows bringing together sensors, samples, synthesis engines and video. It is used by sound artists throughout the world, but also by visual artists and in installations.
This workshop is open to all levels, with no prior skills in programming required. Participants are required to bring a laptop with Max installed on it (30 day free trial) and a pair of headphones. If you’ve never heard of Max and want to see how it works, there are a few videos to get started on the Cycling’74 Youtube channel.
The workshop is open to all backgrounds. We specially encourage women and non-binary participants to take part in the workshop.
We will be in touch to registered participants for further workshop details and links to the online meeting room. If you have any technical questions concerning the session, please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ticket prices are £15 per person and £10 for concessions. Please email with any questions.
