About this Event

Max for Music and Performance

In this series of workshop, you will learn how to make sounds and music, with examples from the artistic practice of workshop leader Valeria Radchenko. By breaking down patches she created for her own performances, Valeria shows how these tools can be used in people’s individual practices. With a focus on making coding and music-making less scary and more accessible, you will build ways to mesh coding in Max with your existing creative practice with a collaborative, hands-on approach, and have fun making sounds together. The content will also be guided by what you want to learn and bring to the sessions.Anyone can code and make music; through these workshops, you will find and create tools to realise your visions!

What will you learn in these workshops?

  • Explore and play with different ways of sound-making, e.g. sampling and synthesising
