Course overview

The meetup featured presentations from three expert speakers: Kevin Kripper, Sabina Covarrubias, and Dr. Francisco Colasanto.

Kripper, a generative artist from Buenos Aires, showcased his digital tools that expand the creative possibilities of experimental artists. His software for modular video synthesis, Vsynth, drew inspiration from the late 60's culture of co-creating technologies to liberate the spirit.

Covarrubias, a composer, multimedia artist, and researcher in computer music, shared her works that encompassed a wide array of genres, from visual music to symphonic. Her works had been exhibited in highly renowned concert halls and festivals across several countries.

Dr. Francisco Colasanto, also known as Doctor Zoppa, talked about his focus on the composition of experimental electronic music and his interest in algorithmic processes for creation. He shared his expertise in teaching Max, having taught courses in several countries in Latin America and Europe, and his book "Max/MSP: guía de programación para artistas" (CMMAS, 2010). He is currently the deputy director of the Mexican Center for Music and Sonic Arts and a professor at ENES-Morelia (UNAM).
