Techno~ -- Today's piece is an etude made using MaxMSP. For those unfamiliar with this software, it consists of many virtual objects which are connected by virtual patch chords. Each object has a specific function, sometimes simple and other times complex. There are so many different objects that it takes years to learn them all (if ever!)
For today I decided to figure out an object called "techno~". Something about it has always intimidated me a little bit, but no more...I am beginning to understand exactly what it can do. Enjoy.
