Algorithmic Composition with Max/MSP and Open Music
August 27, 2018 - August 31, 2018
A formalized journey into the basics of algorithmic composition, using Max/MSP and OpenMusic as pre-composition tools to the aid the artist and engineer alike. We will be exploring how simple algorithmic models can result in intriguing sonic results. Daily tutorials will focus on isolated musical parameters, though not to the extent as to prevent touching on related topics when relevant. The ultimate goal is that students develop their best work over the week into a short composition that uses one or several of the models that we will be explaining during the workshop. Our hope is to show that working with algorithms is not only useful for schematic problem solving, but can also be a good tool for expanding musical and creative thinking.
