In Max/MSP/Jitter for Music, expert author and music technologist V. J. Manzo provides a user-friendly introduction to a powerful programming language that can be used to write custom software for musical interaction. Through clear, step-by-step instructions illustrated with numerous examples of working systems, the book equips readers with everything they need to know in order to design and complete meaningful music projects. The book also discusses ways to interact with software beyond the mouse and keyboard through use of camera tracking, pitch tracking, video game controllers, sensors, mobile devices, and more. The book does not require any prerequisite programming skills, but rather walks readers through a series of small projects through which they will immediately begin to develop software applications for practical musical projects. As the book progresses, and as the individual's knowledge of the language grows, the projects become more sophisticated. This new and expanded second edition brings the book fully up-to-date including additional applications in integrating Max with Ableton Live. It also includes a variety of additional projects as part of the final three project chapters. The book is of special value both to software programmers working in Max/MSP/Jitter and to music educators looking to supplement their lessons with interactive instructional tools, develop adaptive instruments to aid in student composition and performance activities, and create measurement tools with which to conduct music education research.

Foundations of Music Technology explores the core concepts of music technology and its uses as a mechanism to facilitate musicianship in a way that is accessible to all students--from the musician with limited technology skills to the technology expert with little knowledge in music notation. The text uses a free, customized software application for Mac or PC in order to demonstrate fundamental concepts of music technology germane to all professional applications like recording, synthesis, digital notation, MIDI, automating effects, acoustics, and more. With the concepts grasped using this "software-independent" approach, students can then transfer those learned skills over to the software of their choice.

Interactive Composition empowers readers with all of the practical skills and insights they need to compose and perform electronic popular music in a variety of popular styles. The book begins by introducing all of the tools involved in creating interactive compositions through the software Ableton Live and Max for Live. The following chapters then put the tools to use by both describing particular musical styles and also teaching readers how to compose and perform within these styles using the software. As readers progresses through the book, they will learn to use the software to facilitate their own unique compositional objectives. This book takes readers through all of the steps in designing interactive music compositions. It is geared toward both beginners as well as intermediate and advanced readers, and so readers with even little experience working with digital audio software will quickly learn how to design powerful systems that facilitate their unique compositional ideas. A particular feature of this book is that it discusses the historical context of several electronic music styles used by DJs, electronic musicians, and other artists, and then describes, using software, the technical process used in the composition and performance of these styles. Each chapter leads readers to create an original composition in a given style and also discusses the techniques that can be used to perform the piece in an idiomatic fashion.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Kunst - Computerkunst, Medienkunst, Note: 2,0, Staatliche Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Im Rahmen dieser Arbeit werden drei Methoden zur gezielten Klangsynthese erläutert, die auf den von der Max Sound Box des IRCAM angebotenen Modulen basieren. Diskutiert wurden Chromax, Chant und Pags. Max/MSP ist eine graphisch basierte Entwicklungsumgebung für Musik und Multimedia der Firma Cycling ’74, mit dessen Hilfe Prozesse in Echtzeit konstruiert werden können. Komponisten, Musiker, Softwareentwickler und Kunstschaffende benutzen sie zur Erstellung von interaktiven Softwareprodukten. Einen besonders weit verbreiteten Einsatz findet Max/MSP im Live-Betrieb, in der elektronischen Musik und im Bereich des Live-Video. Max/MSP ist eine objektbasierte Programmiersprache, die aus Modulen besteht. Die Objekte in Max/MSP sind entweder als in C entwickelten „externals“ vorhanden oder als „abstractions“, die aus einem Zusammenschluss mehrerer „externals“ aufgebaut sind. Die visuelle Programmierung ermöglicht eine Zusammenschaltung dieser Module in diversen Formen. Dabei werden praktisch die durch Kabel verbundenen Funktionsgruppen eines echten Synthesizers simuliert. Hierdurch bildet Max/MSP eine Art von Software-Synthesizer ab, kann jedoch auch für andere Zwecke wie Messtechnik und Automatisierung verwendet werden. Max/MSP bietet eine Vielzahl von Sensoren und MIDI-Controllern, durch die die Software-Patches gesteuert werden können. Zwei prinzipielle Erweiterungen der Sprache Max als Objektsammlungen sind derzeit verfügbar - Max Signal Processing (MSP) und Jitter. MSP dient zur Synthese und Audioverarbeitung in Echtzeit. Jitter ermöglicht die Verarbeitung von Video und 3D-Grafik in Echtzeit. Im Internet ist eine große Anzahl von „externals“ für Max/MSP erhältlich, die meisten davon sind sogar kostenfrei. Ein Beispiel dafür ist die Max Sound Box, die vom Forschungsinstitut für Akustik/Musik (IRCAM) in Frankreich entwickelt worden ist. Die Max Sound Box stellt eine Menge von Max/MSP „externals“ für Klanganalyse, -synthese und -transformation in Echtzeit zur Verfügung.

Music for Children with Hearing Loss

A Resource for Parents and Teachers

Author: Lyn Schraer-Joiner

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0199382506

Written by an expert in the field who is both a teacher and a teacher-educator, this book is an in-depth and practical resource for educators and parents who wish to introduce music to children with hearing loss. Author Lyn Schraer-Joiner makes a compelling case for offering music education to children with hearing loss before presenting a series of important and up-to-date teaching strategies meant to inform their educational experience, including preparations for the classroom, communication strategies for parents and teaching staff, and tips on more specific or technical matters such as conducting musical audiograms. These resources provide a solid background for hands-on instructional materials such as music lessons, supplemental activities, educational resources, discussion points, and journal samples for the classroom and home. Schraer-Joiner goes to great lengths to offer detailed, purposeful suggestions for specific classroom settings such as general music, choral ensemble, and instrumental ensemble as well as a set of recommended listening lessons that take this potential variety of settings into account. Furthermore, Schraer-Joiner provides suggestions for incorporating music into everyday activities and also presents an overview of recent research which reinforces the benefits of music upon social and emotional development as well as speech and language development. Each chapter concludes with a section entitled "For Your Consideration" which features review questions, ideas, and instructional activities that teachers and parents can accomplish with deaf and hard of hearing children. The book's "Kids Only" online component provides deaf and hard-of-hearing children with descriptions of the many opportunities available to them in the arts, inspirational case studies and stories, as well as important ideas and topics for deaf and hard-of-hearing children to consider discussing with the teachers, family members, and healthcare professionals that they work with. The message of this book is a powerful one particularly in this day and age. As hearing aid and cochlear implant technologies improve and become increasingly widespread, all teachers--especially music teachers--should expect to see more deaf and hard-of-hearing children in their classrooms. Awareness and preparation are not only vital in aiding these children in the classroom, but are in fact required of teachers by federal law. This book is a comprehensive resource for teachers and parents who wish to gain a better understanding of the emerging field of music education for students with hearing loss.

Author: David J. Acheson

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9783866470200

Das Buch beginnt mit einem alten Zaubertrick - Man nehme eine 3-stellige Zahl, etwa 782, kehre sie um, ziehe die kleinere von der größeren ab und addiere dazu die Umkehrung. Also - 782 - 287 = 495, dann 495 + 594. Und schon ist man mitten in der Wunderwelt der Mathematik, denn das Ergebnis ist immer - 1089. Mit solchen und vielen weiteren Beispielen aus Alltag, Geschichte und Wissenschaft gelingt es David Acheson, die faszinierende Welt der Mathematik zu erschließen - ein geistreicher Überblick, eine für jeden verständliche Einführung.

Environmental Sound Artists

In Their Own Words

Environmental Sound Artists: In Their Own Words is an incisive and imaginative look at the international environmental sound art movement, which emerged in the late 1960s. The term environmental sound art is generally applied to the work of sound artists who incorporate processes in which the artist actively engages with the environment. While the field of environmental sound art is diverse and includes a variety of approaches, the art form diverges from traditional contemporary music by the conscious and strategic integration of environmental impulses and natural processes. This book presents a current perspective on the environmental sound art movement through a collection of personal writings by important environmental sound artists. Dismayed by the limitations and gradual breakdown of contemporary compositional strategies, environmental sound artists have sought alternate venues, genres, technologies, and delivery methods for their creative expression. Environmental sound art is especially relevant because it addresses political, social, economic, scientific, and aesthetic issues. As a result, it has attracted the participation of artists internationally. Awareness and concern for the environment has connected and unified artists across the globe and has achieved a solidarity and clarity of purpose that is singularly unique and optimistic. The environmental sound art movement is borderless and thriving.
