Max/MSP patcher

Lecturer: Mindaugas Gapševičius
Credits: 6 ECTS, 2 SWS
Date: Thursdays, 11:00-12:30
Venue: Marienstraße 7b, Raum 204
First meeting: Thursday, 11th of April 11:00-12:30


The course focuses on developing simple applications with Max/MSP/Jitter in relation to an individual organism. The goal of the course is the understanding of an electric signal passed to the human body and back into the Max. Beside the transduction of the signals we will learn how to amplify, convert, and record data for audiovisual applications and interactive performances.

For bridging computers with own bodies we will use noninvasive techniques, such as an Arduino or alternative microcontrollers and sensors (humidity, vibration, temperature, etc.) attached to the body. The reference to the practical framework is the use of electric signals for electrotherapy, electrical muscle stimulation, or electrophysiological monitoring, which, finally, might be used to control peripheral devices.

The experiments with electric signals will develop into individual projects, documented and presented on the GMUGestaltung medialer Umgebungen WikiHaiwaiian for ''fast'' (not an acronym). It is the name for a hypertext system for websites where the user may not only read the content but is also able to change it instantaneously through the browser..
