These two days workshop is ideally the second part of my introductory workshop on the basics of creating visual content with Max/MSP. The advanced topics that are going to be explored in this workshop are:

- Introduction of scripting with JavaScript inside Max, which allows us to introduce algorithms that are difficult to create in the normal patching environment.

- Going deeper into jit.gen programming, seeing how we can create a bilboarded particle system and how we can manipulate it.

- We will introduce systems to make our visuals reacting to sound, so crafting some tools that can be used inside a VJ set or installation context.

- We will introduce working with jit.gl.pix for the creation of "post processing" effects.

Since this is a workshop about medium/advanced topics, the participants are required to have a basic knowledge of Jitter and to know their way around Max patching. For complete beginners that wish to participate to the workshop I suggest to view my tutorials bout jitter:
