Max For Live (M4L) 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 M4L Hack Night is for anyone interested in building their own instruments, interfaces, or performance systems.
At the beginning of the evening attendees will be presented with a new Max For Live device to create, a problem to solve, a challenge to explore. Hackers will be grouped into teams of diverse skill levels to create, collaborate and share ideas. For new M4L users, "getting started" tutorials will be available. At the end of the evening, each team will share their M4L devices, providing everyone with new tools and ideas to take home and use. Both new and experienced users are encouraged to come. If you have never worked with Max For Live it is highly encouraged to do some homework before the event. Make sure to bring your laptop, and local food and drinks will be available for purchase.

The Max for Live Hack Night was created by multimedia artist, guitarist, composer Christopher Willits  and Overlap + Cullen Miller- San Francisco-based sound artist and composer and the organization he helps to direct, GAFFTA. + Special help from Neal Riley.

Overlap Showcase - March 01, 2012 - San Francisco

OVERLAP at Public Works - San Francisco - March 1, 2012 - 7pm-12

March 1, 2012 is the next installment of Public Works' collaboration with Overlap.org.

San Francisco is a creative place. It's actually so creative that sometimes we're all so busy that we don't make time to connect to the people around us- the connections that can actually help our ideas come to life. OVERLAP is a place and time to join our diverse interests in beautiful music, food, film and art, and celebrate the vibrant micro-communities that make this city amazing.

The evening begins at 7pm with a unique workshop on the creative process from accomplished San Francisco musician and artist Christopher Willits, followed by a surprise film screening, live performances from Mophono (one of the main leaders in the SF beat scene, both as a producer and organizer of events) and Danny Paul Grody's beautiful guitar work (Danny's band The Drift recently went on tour with Explosions in the Sky and have a new album out). Throughout the night local organic food will be served, Slayer's Club Dj's will be sharing their impeccable taste of music, and SF art and craft vendors will be sharing their latest work for purchase.
