MPG Carepackage

April 13th, 2010

SEAMUS 2010 @ St. Cloud State University in Minnesota

I just returned from several days at the Society for Electroacoustic Music in the United States National Conference.  In addition to hearing loads of new music, I gave a presentation on the MPG Carepackage.  This continues my efforts to get more people using this collection of patches for networking computers running Max/MSP/Jitter and sharing musical data.  Overall, the reaction was positive and I hope many of my colleagues from around the country will follow up by downloading the following files:

It is worth noting that I gave this MPG Carepackage lecture earlier at FEAST in November and you can download a recording of that presentation.  At FEAST, I was a little less pressed for time and so it might be easier to understand the more relaxed pace of that version.

I also had a chance to spend some time with two former Stetson students: Jana Fisher (BA/2009) and Chester Udell (BM/2005).  Jana had a piece entitled Top40:France selected for the conference. She created this spectral composition for her senior project and it sounded fantastic on the big Genelec speakers.  Chester had a piece for trombone and live electronics that was really well done and I am not the only one that thought so; Chester was awarded first place in the annual SEAMUS/ASCAP Student Commission!  Big congrats to him as this is a huge honor.

All in all a good conference.  Looking forward to hearing where next year will be held.
