As MMCC8097 is a practice-based unit, students are expected to attend both hours of practical workshops which introduce new concepts each week and offer a space for students to put theory into practice. Workshops are designed to offer students practice-based learning with realtime support, and content delivered in class will not be repeated by other means such as via email or one-on-one consultation.
Prior knowledge of Max is not a requirement, however general computer literacy skills are assumed (creating files/folders, copying files etc).
Students are required to bring headphones to class each week, and to source/create their own media (music, sound, images, video) for assignments, assessments, and demonstrations/performances. Students are encouraged to bring USB sticks or portable Hard Drives (not formatted as NTFS) to class to backup and store their work.
Readings and interactive exercises:
This unit is computer-focussed and practical in nature. A number of interactive readings and exercises will be available in the Max Help and Documentation and the in-built Max/MSP/Jitter tutorials within Max. Other readings and extra curricular tasks will be disseminated via iLearn.
Classes start week 2.
