Max/MSP Live Coding

Max/MSP Live Coding

A realtime performance of creating a Max-patch, starting from zero.

The Rules:

  • You have 6 minutes to build a Max-patch and do a performance with it.
  • Start with an empty patch.
  • Only use the standard objects that are part of Max/MSP/Jitter.
  • Don’t use externals, pre-build external datafiles, help files, or anything of that kind.

This short performance was created for a Max Live Coding contest. The participant receiving the loudest applause from the audience would win.

  1. This is a lot like the final project in third year computer music at Carleton University. The only difference is we had all semester to make something that complex. The other minor difference was that we had to make a midi note engine rather than an audio engine, but I'm sure this would pass as acceptable. I embeded this youtube video on my homepage as well!

  2. I like the idea but with youtube video's I think it gets a bit silly. I mean; you don't really program, you simply recite what you know from memory. You can see it happening in the video all too clearly when he simply drops objects, immediately fills out the values and thats it. Thats not programming IMO, thats reciting.

    Reminds me of my study, the electonical part. "Build a flip flop circuit". The building process itself took very little time, providing the motivation as to what parts we used and /why/ took a little longer. IMO video's like these would be more impressing if they'd actually commentated while they were building.
