Sound Design with Max4Live

Sexta-feira, 08/02/2019 - Domingo, 10/02/2019
10:00 - 17:30


It is our pleasure to host multidisciplinary artist Marco Accardi for a series of introductory workshops to sound and visual design in Max/MSP and Ableton Live.

Detailed workshop description: Marco-HRD-MILL-ProSound.pdf


The purpose of this workshop is to apply a path of learning in an creative and technical way. It will be explained the theory of the techniques and the structure of the algorithm in Max. Most of the time we are going to work on the same visual source in order to help the students to understand better the video processing. During the practice, the students will experiment with the techniques learnt with the support of the tutor.

DAY 1 – MODULE 1 / Introduction and FM Synthesis

Brief introduction to the history and the workflow of the software; general overview of the type of objects to use in Max. The students will learn about the relation between the analog domain and the digital domain, amplitude and time, Max and time. Furthermore what is a sound generator and how to implement a simple FM synthesizer in Ableton Live.

DAY 2 – MODULE 2 / Sound Sculpture pt. 1

Through theoretical and practical lessons the students will be able to understand and use, in a technical and creative way, the short and long time delays and the modulation of the delay processors in order to manipulate a sonic event.

DAY 3 – MODULE 3 / Sound Sculpture pt. 2

Through theoretical and practical lessons the students will be able to understand and use, in a technical and creative way, the subtractive and grain synthesis.

6 hours/module:
10h00 – 13h00 workshop session
13h00 – 14h30 lunch break
14h30 – 17h30 practice session

1 module – 60 €
2 modules – 100 €
complete workshop – 150 €
sound design + audio-visual design workshops – 250 €

The workshop will be delivered in English.
Participants must bring their own computer with Live installed (the trial version is fine), and headphones.
