MAKE pal Peter Kirn @ Create Digital Motion (who also wrote a great MIDI primer in MAKE 07) is teaching a class in NYC, he writes – “I’ll be teaching a class on using the free Mac developer tool Quartz Composer to build DIY projects and interactive visual art driven by music, sound, and video. We’ll also take a brief look at the open-source software Processing, for a more code-based approach. The idea is to learn some of the basic skills of designing interactive art and DIY multimedia projects, so that people can create their own custom software creations. You’ll also see some of the tech behind a project in an upcoming issue of Make. The class is hosted in East Williamsburg at the new 3rd Ward gallery, a membership-based, interdisciplinary studio for artists, dancers, and musicians. Make readers can use code PK0806 to get either 10% off a three-month membership or a free workshop of their choice. Non-New Yorkers, I hope to have some resources in the early fall on Create Digital Motion…” – Link & info.
