This is the course page for Shawn Decker’s School of the Art institute Courses on Max/MSP, sound synthesis, and live computer-based performance:

Programming Sound:Max/MSP

Programming Sound: Synthesis

Programming Sound: Performance

Given that these courses inter-relate so much – there will be shared material here – as well as pages dedicated to each of the classes.  In the header are links to the syllabus for each class.  The downloads page has sections for each class as well.

I’m just this year transferring my pages from my old web site – so please bear with me as I gradually do this. This material will remain up after the class – so feel free to come back and visit and use it as an ongoing resource!
