Editorial Reviews

Review


"A groundbreaking, step-by-step approach to empowering the creativity of music educators and music students through interactive computer software design." --from the Foreword by David Elliott, Professor of Music and Music Education, New York University


"Max has become a major player in the world of music making and VJ Manzo's book is perfect for those who want to become fluent with the language. And, for the growing legions of music makers who are using clusters of applications for diverse projects, Manzo's clear categorization of Max functionality may well make this book an ongoing standard reference for building specific Max/MSP patches within each cluster." --Morton Subotnick, Composer and Educator


"This book is a lucid and systematic introduction for beginners or intermediate users to all three components of the popular multimedia software Max/MSP/Jitter, covering MIDI, basic programming concepts, real-time audio/video manipulation, camera tracking, and alternate controllers. VJ Manzo does an excellent job of clearly explaining how to use the software. Music educators, students, music technologists, sound designers, game developers, composers, and multimedia artists interested in learning Max in order to develop their own software applications will find this to be a highly useful text." --Cort Lippe, Director, The Lejaren Hiller Computer Music Studios, University of Buffalo


"There are very few comprehensive resources out there for educators in music technology to get their students engaged in the creative act of writing software, as opposed to simply relying on commercial applications. This book, start to finish, provides a thorough curriculum for using Max in a music education setting, nicely complementing the company's own documentation by showing how to build more complex projects that integrate interactivity and sound. Manzo's book is a great read, not only for educators and students but for electronic musicians looking to expand their arsenal of expressive tools." --R. Luke DuBois, Brooklyn Experimental Media Center, Polytechnic Institute of NYU

This is a useful book for anyone that is interested in learning MAX/MSP, however it's a bit boring if you are not a teacher. I bought the book, and didn't realise it was for teachers. I do like how it's written, and it covers many topics that I'm interested, especially MIDI. If you are MIDI oriented and not into making software synths this might be a good starting point, but you might lose interest when it gets into music theory.

V.J. takes you by hand and teaches you all the basics of Max/MSP/Jitter, with some good insights about music theory and composition.
During each chapter, you will build one or more patches that are actually useful (the ear training project for example is pretty cool) and step by step you will be introduced to all the main objects and how they interact with each other.

If "Electronic Music and Sound Design" (A. Cipriani, M.Giri) is way more complete, this book does a better job to introduce you in the Max/MSP world. I'd still buy them both and start with this one.
