As a crash course into electroacoustic composition, I’m rapidly trying to get to grips with Max/MSP and it’s open source off-spring, PureData. For the first assignment (to build a soundscape around a short movie clip), I’ll be using Max/MSP and Jitter to compose a generative soundtrack.

To get to grips with the Max environment, I’m playing with basic functions such as luminosity histograms and (bad) synth sounds. From this I hope to emerge a more refined generative soundtrack to the movie clip.
