About the Workshop
MAX/MSP is an application specially designed for interactive works
such as installations and performances with music and video in real
time. It can be connected to Arduino interfaces, a wide variety of
controllers, sensors and MIDI controllers and it is relatively easy to
learn. It includes different environments, such as MSP (for real time
audio) and Jitter (for real time video).
The workshop gives an introduction to the software and, in particular,
about the use of Jitter in interactive environments such as
installations or dance pieces, with the aid of MIDI controllers,
tracking systems and/or body sensors. The workshop also includes an
overview of Jitter objects, and the design of patchers and user-
