Max For Live allows you to design your own tools for music and multimedia production, and the Max for Live Hack Night brings users together in one place to create and learn from each other. With the intention of developing a community around sharing and creating new custom-made devices and ideas, The Max for Live Hack Night is for anyone interested in building their own instruments, interfaces, or performance systems.
The evening begins with preeminent Max designers giving short presentations of their work, and sharing their patches to learn from. After and short break with music, impromptu performance demos, and drinks, the night shifts into "hack mode" where attendees will be grouped into teams to collaborate and share ideas. At the end of the evening, each team will share their devices providing everyone with new tools and ideas to take home and use. Both new and experienced users are encouraged to come, and make sure to bring your laptop.
