Interface: The boundary or shared space between two areas or systems. It allows for interaction between two entities that would otherwise be unable to communicate with each other.

Serial Audio Mixer Max Patch
Go through the Max Tour. Check out the lessons and the documentation links. Come into class next week with an idea of a max patch that interacts with a physical object through Arduino. Perhaps you would like to explore some of your ideas from last week’s Interface post? Also bring in whatever materials you might need (fabric, simple garment or object to which you would like to attach a sensor, etc.) I will also show you how to build and program a touch sensor in class.
