CNMAT presents our intensive and immersive summer workshops for artists, musicians, interface designers, and anyone wanting to improve their skills with Max/MSP/Jitter or learn from scratch. The courses will be taught by programmers and artists with a great deal of experience both using and teaching the software. By the end of the workshops, students should be able to construct sophisticated, robust patches.

Max/MSP/Jitter Day+Night School - July 18-22, 2011, 10AM-9PM
- This intensive week of hands-on classes covers a wide variety of topics related to Max/MSP programming. - Instructors: John MacCallum, Jeff Lubow and other experienced teachers Fee: $750

The classes each day will consist of two lectures separated by lab sessions where the students will receive one-on-one attention from the instructors and assistants. All students, regardless of their skill level, are encouraged to attend all of the sessions throughout the day.

The schedule will be as follows:

July 18-22, 2011

10am-12pm: Beginning/Intermediate Max/MSP Programming
12-1pm: Lunch
1-3pm: Beginning/Intermediate Lab
3-5pm: Open Lab/Special Topics (topics will include Max for Live, gestural controllers and eTextile sensing)
5-6pm: Dinner Break
6-9pm: Advanced Max/MSP Programming

NOTE: Participants are required to bring their own laptops with Max/MSP already installed and running. (Mac OSX or Windows XP/Vista) Jitter is optional, but recommend for students interested in video processing. Please bring a set of headphones to use during the lab. Also, participants are strongly advised to have gone through the Max, MSP, and Jitter (if applicable) tutorials before the workshop.

Pricing: As always, we try to keep our workshop fees as reasonable as possible. In past years the combined cost of Day+Night School would be $1000 ($550+$450) for 2011 the total cost is only $750 for the entire week.


Jitter Night School – July 25-29, 2011, 6-9 PM
Jitter is an extension to Max that allows flexible generation and manipulation of video, matrix, and 3D graphics data. - This five-evening sequence of classes covers Cycling 74's Jitter environment and is designed for students with at least a basic understanding of Max programming. - Instructor: Andrew Benson Fee: $450

Location: Both workshops will be held at [|CNMAT, 1750 Arch St., Berkeley, CA]
