lullaby

By fc on September 6, 2020 3:01 am

Named after sleeping.

Bird sound recorded by DavidLamhauge on Freesound.org.

Generative music again. Max -> Live. Really couldn't be bothered this week, but this turned out pretty fun.

Definitely a soothing lullaby. Nice one this week smile

Do you have any good resources for learning Max? I was thinking of going through the tutorials to start.

Super dreamy and a little bit creepy

Hey thanks!

Hm, resources for learning Max... that's an interesting question. Conventional wisdom would suggest something like the tutorials you've linked - and they are pretty good! I'm not a big linear-learner, but I think what I'd recommend is the Pure Data floss manual (http://write.flossmanuals.net/pure-data/introduction2/) (with Pd rather than Max), and then work on adapting those into Max as a way of learning the objects in Max (and adaptation is a good problem-solving/learning style).

I'd also strongly recommend dude837 on youtube (https://www.youtube.com/user/dude837). His tutorial videos are fast and punchy and often pretty advanced BUT offer a good learning tool because you can do them bit by bit, study the objects via their help and reference and how they work, make notes for yourself as you go, and as you develop, turn parts of those programs into other programs for yourself by branching out.

Thanks! Emily was narrating a make-up film scene while listening to it. It was dark.

Also I would add that unless you have something you *want* to make, it's really hard to learn. I've always found it best (including with my own students) when there is a clear goal in what is being made. Without that the intrinsic motivation isn't there.

Oh, for sure! My main focuses will be modeling some filters, and possibly making some visuals in Jitter. Thanks for the tips!!!

It has a slightly eery atmosphere so I'm not sure it's a lullaby to me. It has a mysterious, delicate but slightly dark vibe. I enjoyed this track.

One person's lullaby is another's nightmare? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
