Like the previous chapter, chapter 19, on “Informal Music Learning Instruments” is more of show-and-tell than hands-on. In this chapter, VJ Manzo shows how Max/MSP/Jitter can be used to create programs that greatly facilitate the exploration of musical concepts like harmony. In addition to this pedagogical goal, though, I also see application of a lot of these principles and patches to my own hoped-for work on live looping with my saxophone, especially as VJ’s patches might be good for harmonizing. Hmm… we’ll have to see later this summer.
