How it's done

A few months ago I saw a gig with Keith Fullerton Whitman (a/k/a Hrvatski) in Jamaica Plain, making strange noises with a guitar and his PowerBook. I caught on glimpse of what he was doing on the computer, and apparently all he was doing was mousing around, occasionally clicking on boxes of different colors. Well, I think was he was using was Max/MSP – I've heard about it before, and it's in the (Mac) news because they've just announced a version for OS X. It's pretty wild; it's not really a music program but more of a generalized programmable media controller.

when i worked at opcode we had the license for Max in the US. i actually edited some of the Max manual. i didn't understand any of it then though. i barely do now. it's actually a visual object-oriented programming language optimized for MIDI (and now with MSP, audio). very very ahead of its time. it was developed at ircam. those guys are just wacky. see also metasynth.
