Re: JODI - Max Payne Cheats Only: Demo and Q & A, May 10th


I may just savor this sweet accidental (or not) nostalgia for a bit, and
look at max payne a little later... it was q/index.html that fragged me.

Congrats to jodi!

ICAM Lecture Series: Miller Puckette, Thursday May 4th, 6PM


Please join us May 4th for a presentation by Miller Puckette. This talk
will be held in the CALIT2 auditorium, Atkinson Hall, 6PM, University of
California San Diego.

Miller Puckette obtained a B.S. in Mathematics from MIT (1980) and Ph.
D. in Mathematics from Harvard (1986). Puckette was a member of MIT's
Media Lab from its inception until 1987, and then a researcher at IRCAM
(l'Institut de Recherche et de Coordination Musique/Acoustique, founded
by composer and conductor Pierre Boulez). There he wrote the Max program
for MacIntosh computers, which was first distributed commercially by
Opcode Systems in 1990 and is now available from Cycling74.com .

In 1989 Puckette joined IRCAM's "musical workstation" team and put
together an enhanced version of Max, called Max/FTS, for the ISPW
system, which was commercialized by Ariel, Inc. This system became a
widely used platform in computer music research and production
facilities. The IRCAM real-time development team has since reimplemented
and extended this software under the name jMax, which is distributed
free with source code.

Puckette joined the Music department of the University of California,
San Diego in 1994, and is now Associate Director of the Center for
Research in Computing and the Arts (CRCA). He is currently working on a
new real-time software system for live musical and multimedia
performances called Pure Data ("Pd"), in collaboration with many other
artists/researchers/programmers worldwide. Pd is free and runs on Linux,
IRIX, and Windows systems.

Since 1997 Puckette has also been part of the Global Visual Music
project with Mark Danks , Rand Steiger , and Vibeke Sorensen , which has
been generously supported by a grant from the Intel Research Council

CRCA, Atkinson Hall, AUDITORIUM

The Center for Research in Computing and the Arts (CRCA) presents a
conversation with ANNE-MARIE SCHLEINER and LUIS HERNANDEZ titled “The
Socio-economic Politics for Trans-border Art”
“The socio-economic politics for trans-border artwork using gaming
technologies within the arts” is an event linking Anne-Marie in Boulder,
Colorado and Luis in Mexico City with an audience here in San Diego, and
will utilize the networking, conferencing capability of today’s research
communities in CALIT2 and CRCA.
Anne-Marie Schleiner, a gaming artist/designer, fills a variety of
roles as a writer, critic and curator. She received a BA in studio art from
the University of California at Santa Cruz, 1992 and an MFA in computers in
fine art from the San Jose State University, California, 1998. She is an
assistant professor of fine art at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
Her work has been extensively exhibited internationally and include
TechnoSublime, Colorado University Art Museum, University of Colorado at
Boulder (2005); Killer Instinct, The New Museum, New York (2004); Media City
Seoul 2004, Seoul Museum of Art, Korea and the 2004 Whitney Biennial,
Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
Additionally, Schleiner has curated several online exhibitions of game
mods and add-ons including Luckykiss (2000) and Cracking the Maze: Game
Patches and Plug-ins as Hacker Art (1991).
Luis Hernandez is co-founder of Heterarquia, which is dedicated to
architectural experimentation. He received a degree in Engineering and
Architecture from Escuela Superior de Arquitectura, Mexico City and his work
ranges from virtual architectures to installation of videogame intervention.

His projects include developing a proposal for an interactive surface,
an interactive pavillion (second prize, Third Arquine Competition) a
low-cost shelter for the homeless, and a proposal for an Interactive
Hypersurface inserted in Mexico City (shortlisted, Miami Biennal 2004). He
was an artist in residence in Sala del Cielo, Centro de la Imagen and has
shown his work as part of the ‘Vitrinas/ public art’ program.
Luis was commissioned by rhizome.org to produce Oversaturation, 2004
and collaborated with Anne-Marie Schleiner to produce ‘Corridos’ for
inSite_05 as an Artist in residence at CRCA. His work has been exhibited at
FILE festival, Sao Paulo; Microwave Festival, Hong Kong; the New Museum, NYC
and Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, among others.

This event is part of ICAM 2006 Lecture series, presented in the
CALIT2
building now named Atkinson Hall. For maps and directions to CRCA:
