*Thursday, July 31*
This month's Patching Circle will feature Tommy Martinez who will demonstrate his MSP audio setup involving granular synthesis, convolution reverb and foot controllers as well as discussing live instrument processing and laptop embodiment. Also featured will be Robert Ramirez who will take us through the patcher internals and techniques he uses in Jitter to create video puppets for live performance and installation.

The New York City Patching Circle is an free alternating monthly meeting and salon open to anyone who is working or interested in media programming and audiovisual performance. We mostly use Pd and Max/MSP, but all are welcome.
Beginners and Experienced welcome. Open to everyone, students, the public, unicorns. Work on personal projects, professional projects, school projects, ask for help, help others, or just patch quietly to yourself in a room full of other people patching patches and helping other people patch.
Each month there will be informal salon, featuring demonstrations of projects, performances and systems in the process of being built. The format will include short performances, artist talks about process and performance techniques and Q&A depending on time availability. The salon is openly curated with the intent of being as inclusive as possible and participation is open all practitioners working in realtime media.
