As part of the [|Berkeley Big Bang 2008], Professor [|Edmund Campion] will demonstrate real-time interactive musical applications of computers featuring the [|CNMAT Max/MSP/Jitter Depot] and the eight channel surround system in the CNMAT Sound Spatialization Theater.

Included will be an introduction to the [|CNMAT Music Information Center]. From tutorials on recording technique to the history of electronic music to third-party externals for Max/MSP, the Music Information Center is an ever-growing directory of materials concerned with new music in general and the creation of electronic and computer music.

On June 1 through 3, BAM/PFA and the Berkeley Center for New Media are hosting a new media arts festival on the Berkeley campus called [|Berkeley Big Bang 2008]. This event is timed to link with 01SJ: A Global Festival of Art on the Edge, a new-media-art biennial, June 4 through 8 in San Jose. Occurring together for the first time, these two events combine to create one of the nation’s largest gatherings of new media art; a virtual “big bang” of innovation and creativity. The Berkeley program will include a symposium on new media, art, science, and the body in partnership with the Berkeley Center for New Media and Leonardo: the International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology; a campus media lab demonstration and open house; and an immersive game, “Black Cloud: Red Eye” by Greg Niemeyer. It is presented in tandem with BAM/PFA exhibitions of works by media artists Trevor Paglen, Jim Campbell, and Lynn Hershman Leeson, and Scott Snibbe.
