To reserve a space contact Richard Andrews: richard [at] cnmat [dot] berkeley [dot] edu

Special Guests include John Chowning, David Wessel and David Zicarelli.

CNMAT presents our intensive and immersive summer workshop for artists, musicians, interface designers, and anyone wanting to improve their skills with Max/MSP or learn from scratch. This year’s course will take advantage of the great features that Max 6 has to offer, including lectures, demos, and hands-on lab time, so if you are looking to get up to speed with the latest version of Max, this is the place to be. The course will be taught by programmers and artists with a great deal of experience both using and teaching the software. By the end of the workshop, students should be able to construct sophisticated, robust patches.

Max/MSP/Jitter Day+Night School - July 21-25, 2014, 10AM-9PM This intensive week of hands-on classes covers a wide variety of topics related to Max/MSP programming and will make use of the latest features of Max 6. Instructors: John MacCallum, Jeff Lubow, Adrian Freed 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: Monday through Friday, July 21-25, 2014
Each day: 10am-12pm: Beginning/Intermediate Max/MSP Programming 12-1pm: Lunch 1-3pm: Beginning/Intermediate Lab 3-5pm: Open Lab/Special Topics 5-6pm: Dinner Break 6-9pm: Advanced Max/MSP Programming

NOTE: Participants are required to bring their own laptops with the latest version of Max/MSP 6 already installed and running (Mac OSX or Windows 7/8). Download here: http://cycling74.com/products/max/ 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 the past, the morning and evening sessions were priced separately and would cost over $1000 combined. We offer both for $750.

3  Community / Workshops and Events / [ANN] Workshop at CNMAT Sept. 13, 14 and 15, 1-5pm: OpenMusic on: August 23, 2013, 07:45:49 pm
CNMAT presents:

OpenMusic Workshop
September 13, 14 and 15, 2013
1-5 pm
Instructor: Jean Bresson , IRCAM
Location: CNMAT, 1750 Arch St., Berkeley
Fee: $250 general/$200 students
To reserve a space, contact Richard Andrews: richard@cnmat.berkeley.edu

http://cnmat.berkeley.edu/event/2013/08/19/openmusic_workshop

This workshop will introduce the basic notions of computer-aided composition and provide participants with training in the OpenMusic environment.

OpenMusic (OM) is a visual programming language designed for music composition. Heir to a tradition of computer-aided composition research and environments it is currently one of the principal platforms for composition and contemporary music research in the design and implementation of formalized compositional processes.

This workshop will cover the basics of visual programming in OM, and then move towards more advanced programming concepts and applications. The basic musical editors and data structures of the environment will be presented in different musical contexts ranging from basic data generation or processing to more advanced compositional situations.

Programming notions to be covered will range from basic abstraction and procedures to more advanced concepts such as higher-order functions or iterative processes, with the objective to help participants to become familiar with programming and be able to apply computer formalisms and algorithmic techniques to musical problems.

Advanced sessions will explore the relationship between audio signals and symbolic representations, facilitated by dedicated sound processing engines, interchange formats, and symbolic processing tools. A number of OM libraries for sound analysis, processing and synthesis will also be presented.

Jean Bresson is a researcher in the Music Representation team at IRCAM (STMS lab, Paris, France). He is in charge of research and development on computer-aided composition and involved in several projects centered on connected thematic fields such as sound analysis, synthesis, and spatialization. He is currently the principal developer of OpenMusic and he created or contributed to an important number of specialized tools and libraries for this environment. He is also the author of numerous scientific publications and co-edited, with Carlos Agon and Gérard Assayag, a series of books on computer-aided composition and the use of OpenMusic.

Hi everyone, there are a number of seats still available for our Summer course, although they are filling up fast. If you're interested, please don't wait to sign up!

Also, we're excited to announce that this year we'll be including a number of sessions centered around the use of Microsoft's Kinect to track the movement of dancers and performers.

10  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Interfacing / Re: receiving SMS text messages with arduino on: November 30, 2010, 06:18:38 pm
i found this thread:
http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1279187650

i think i might try this module out as it seems to be the most mobile solution.  
what are people's experiences with xbees and sms?
it seems like people are using a linux machine to receive sms messages.  if this is the case, then i suppose i wouldn't really need an arduino to receive them.
11  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Interfacing / Re: receiving SMS text messages with arduino on: November 30, 2010, 05:30:47 pm
i've found threads that relate to how to decode sms messages, but none on particulars of what hardware to use.

i'm looking for details like
1. what hardware works
2. what can be done with a landline system (for ex., how would one decode/receive messages via a caller id module or similar)
3. what other options there are for bluetooth or similar

i'm trying to avoid tethering to a main cell phone, so that's why i feel the question is a bit more specific.

if anyone can point me to threads that cover the above material specifically, i would appreciate it- i have looked to no avail.

e
12  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Interfacing / Re: receiving SMS text messages with arduino on: November 30, 2010, 03:32:09 pm
i wanted to also mention that i would be up for receiving the data via a landline phone is that is possible.  
anyone have any experience with decrypting the messages that a landline would receive in such a case?

any help on any of the above topics would be appreciated...

thanks,

13  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Interfacing / receiving SMS text messages with arduino on: November 30, 2010, 03:02:23 pm
hi there,

i am new to arduino (and hw in gen.) ... wondering if there is a way to receive sms text messages sent either to
1. arduino board via bluetooth
2. a module attached to the arduino board (not necessarily bluetooth)

i am trying to avoid using a primary cell phone as a tether- would anyone have information about how to go about this?  basically the end goal would be to recognize the messages and be able to do something from the computer with them.  the arduino would therefore be hooked in to the computer via usb.

none of the posts that i have found are very clear to me so i wanted to post something more baseline here.

thanks
