Max for Live preview at AES New York

Ableton and Cycling ’74 are pleased to announce a special workshop taking place on October 9th at 12:00 pm 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.

Hotly anticipated, Max for Live is the culmination of over two  years of co-development by both companies. Max for Live looks  set to provide the worldwide community of Max/MSP enthusiasts  and Ableton Live users with creative capabilities they’ve never  imagined.

The workshop will feature 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 Max for Live and its potential uses 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.
