[Monozukuri Saturday for makers] Jonathan Sparks — Making music experience using MaxMSP & electronic devices

Our third Monozukuri Saturday Meetup had Jonathan Sparks, an artist and maker of musical instruments using electronic devices integrated by MaxMSP, a visual programming language that helps to build complex, interactive programs without any prior experience writing code.

I will write about his workshop on MaxMSP in a separate post, as MaxMSP is a very interesting platform for me as an old-school programmer who started with BASIC and old programming languages.

For now, I am sharing some of the content he showed in the meetup session.

Jonathan’s work

Interesting videos to watch

Jonathan also showed some interesting content that inspires you for making and performing.

Join us to become a maker!

We have the meetup on every Saturday to make things using techniques such as 3D printing, laser cutting, electronic devices like Arduino, etc. Please sign up for our group on to participate in our Monozukuri activities — let’s make things on Saturdays!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
