Holiday bonus assignment

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.  I mentioned this "bonus" assignment in lecture.  Everything you need should be attached.  Unpack the .zip archive and you will see a file called "holiday_assignment.pd".  Open it and follow the explanation and hints.

I will post the solution on Tuesday morning before the 10:10 lecture, so for those who want to try, be sure you have it to me before then.  This will count for one replacement assignment or one additional assignment grade.

A working patch will print the following message in the PD terminal WHEN OPENED.  The leading "0"'s are less important than the message itself but they may privide another hint. The solution requires nothing we haven't discussed in the lecture or lab.


 UPDATE: Solution now attached!

Class 10-10-08 materials

Below you will find materials for our Thursday meeting session.  Download the attached .ZIP archive and "Extract" it to the Desktop or somewhere else convenient.  In addition to  our use of these materials together in class, you may wish to examine them on your own in the studio.

Class materials dowload

Note: One of the sample libraries included here ("glass") comes from freesound.org, an online sound archive that you can both download from and upload to; I encourage both.  The borrowed samples, in this case, require attribution for use.  See "details and attribution" within the "glass" subirectory contained in the archive.

This site is a resource for students to interact beyond the lectures and labs.  Students are encouraged to post their ideas in progress to be commented upon attaching sounds, tracks, patches, or software-specific files for others to listen to, look at, and learn from.  If attachment/upload is not feasible (because of file size or other constraints) feel free to tell us where we can listen (machine, folder, etc) or where else the work might be available.

Please direct any questions about studio functionality troubles (software, hardware, etc) as well as formal assingments to the forums.  This space is intended to be an informal outlet where musical ideas and experiences can be discussed.
