Special Workshop on Max for Live at AES in New York

Ableton and Cycling '74 are pleased to announce a special workshop at the AES Show 2009 in New York City.

The workshop, part of the AES technical program, will preview Max for Live, a new product from Ableton and Cycling '74 that puts the power and potential of Max/MSP/Jitter into Ableton Live, enhancing Live's creative possibilities and allowing users to create new, custom instruments, effects and devices.

Featured at the workshop will be a discussion of Max for Live from the perspective of classically trained violinist and composer Mari Kimura in the context of her own ongoing work with interactive performance technology at the Juilliard School. Kimura will discuss and demonstrate Max/MSP as an interactive tool and show how she uses Ableton Live in production. She will also talk about how she thinks Max for Live will become one of the most powerful and useful technologies for musicians of the future.

Kimura will also demonstrate the "Gesture Follower" on her violin, a project being developed at IRCAM in Paris and implemented in Max for Live. In addition to Kimura's artistic perspective, David Zicarelli, CEO of Cycling '74, and Gerhard Behles, CEO of Ableton, will provide insight into the overall vision of this joint project.
