Max/MSP Projects

The Simple Granularisation Project

This project involves the construction and manipulation of recorded sound through the process called granularisation - basically, the breaking down of a recorded digital sound into its samples and working with them. The technique allows for a wide variety of manipulation.

The project will be based around the object groove~, although you may use any other objects you like, as long as they allow for some sort of manipulation at the level of individual samples.

  • Write to and read from a buffer~.
  • Save a buffer~.
  • Replace a buffer~ - Allow groove~ to do the same.
  • Invent a method for manipulating the data - metro, mouse, number boxes, sliders...
  • Invent one particular individual and unique effect, and make the interface so that you can operate it quickly, easily and effectively.
  • Make the interface attractive, robust and easy to understand. We'll ask each of you to 'play' with each of your objects to see how easy others find it to use...

The Projects and Tasks

The projects and tasks are designed to help you through the various courses and materials that you'll have to deal with, and also to provide an active and practical element to what could otherwise become a rather dry and technical exercise. Tasks are small exercises - you may be asked to complete one or two per week. Projects are larger and carry a higher percentage of the mark. We will undertake two, three, four or more projects and tasks. The final project is usually an individual choice project, and will be worth significantly more than the others in terms of percentages in your portfolio. We will usually try to set aside a time to perform the projects in a public setting.
