In Max/MSP/Jitter for Music, expert author and music technologist V. J. Manzo provides a user-friendly introduction to a powerful programming language that can be used to write custom software for musical interaction. Through clear, step-by-step instructions illustrated with numerous examples of working systems, the book equips readers with everything they need to know in order to design and complete meaningful music projects. The book also discusses ways to interact with software beyond the mouse and keyboard through use of camera tracking, pitch tracking, video game controllers, sensors, mobile devices, and more. The book does not require any prerequisite programming skills, but rather walks readers through a series of small projects through which they will immediately begin to develop software applications for practical musical projects. As the book progresses, and as the individual's knowledge of the language grows, the projects become more sophisticated. This new and expanded second edition brings the book fully up-to-date including additional applications in integrating Max with Ableton Live. It also includes a variety of additional projects as part of the final three project chapters. The book is of special value both to software programmers working in Max/MSP/Jitter and to music educators looking to supplement their lessons with interactive instructional tools, develop adaptive instruments to aid in student composition and performance activities, and create measurement tools with which to conduct music education research.
"Kirtan: The Art & Ecstasy of Chanting is the long-awaited book by Western chant master, Divya Prabha. In this comprehensive guide to the how-to's of chanting, Divya generously shares her personal experience and a wealth of practical tips to help chanters derive full benefit from the beautiful and sacred practice of kirtan-both as leaders and participants. She also presents an introduction to the path of bhakti yoga, of which kirtan is a central practice, guiding readers through its ancient underpinnings, and offering an insightful orientation to the various deities invoked through chanting. This beautiful handbook will deepen and enrich the practice of kirtan for beginners and experienced chanters alike. Divya Prabha is a gifted singer and prolific composer of Sanskrit chants that are now sung all over the world. Born in Nova Scotia, Canada, she underwent a profound spiritual awakening at age 28 which led her to yoga and to a life with her Indian gurus, Swami Sri Kripalvananda, Swami Haridhos Giri, and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Having led joyful and ecstatic kirtan around the world for many years, she now lives a quiet life by the sea, in Nova Scotia, where she continues to compose, record, mentor, write, and conduct programs in bhakti yoga and chanting."--
