This is a difficult question, that may never be answered completely.

It's way .... way to the left of San Francisco depending on which direction
you're looking from and the current state of the Pacific coast plate
tectonics.  I forget, is it the part that eventually slides under Alaska or
does it just become an LA suburb?

The Iso and Matrix object have been recompiled 'fat' by their author -
Charlie Baker - and put on Ircam

The package is much composition oriented and includes the C source code.

Thanks, Charlie, for making the archive growing !

I am very happy to see that the track The Brain People and myself recorded
for the MAX comp was well received but I would like to stress that that
track was written especially for the comp and does not appear anywhere
else. The track is obviously newer but the mood is pretty much in key with
the CD.

I would like to mention the RAND work of Gary Nelson. He's object is the
only item outside MSP that is not standard in what I do with MAX. It's a
solid piece of work and some of the random music generators used by The
Brain People do rely heavily on it.

Thanks Chris for the props and I do hope that more people will get to see
MAX as something beyond a idea but see it as an action.

Thank you both !

> Also, anyone know where Berkley is? :)

It's around here somewhere....  :-)

It's in "northern" California, which really means about halfway through the
state north/south, as part of the San Francisco "Bay Area".  San Francisco
on a peninsula; on the west side is the Pacific ocean and on the east side
the San Francisco Bay.  Oakland is the big city in the "East Bay", on the
mainland side of the SF Bay.  Berkeley is the next city north of Oakland.

Yahoo has pretty cool maps:

>discussion of building MSP externs in C/C++?

A couple of people have asked about that, so I'm sure that yes, there will
*some* discussion of it.  But we're not assuming any prior C programming
experience, so it's not going to be one of the main topics we teach.  But
there will be lots of informal time before and after class and during breaks
during which time you can pick our brains about anything in particular that
you want to know.
