This course includes programming, synthesis and signal processing, and from autumn 2017 it also includes the opportunity to learn how to work with video and graphics in Max. The courses are useful for people working with, for example, audio technology, music, composition, visual arts and interaction design.
This course starts every autumn and is followed over the internet, with close monitoring from our teachers. The tool used in the course is Max from Cycling ’74. The course’s main focus is the technical mastery of this program.
Max is widely used for work with audio, video, sensor electronics, interaction design, installations and media art. The program is well suited to quickly produce complicated technical solutions and is easy to learn for non-developers. The course consists of exercises that provide both technical and theoretical specialization and include topics such as signal processing, synthesis, algorithms, data processing and user interfaces. The aim of the course is to give a thorough review of the program so that the participants can, after completing the course, produce their own solutions in Max.
