Event description


Output presents the Music+Tech Makers Meet-up — a series of conversations with the creator community designing the future of music.

All technologists & audio developers are welcome to join us for the second installation of the series, featuring Tom Hall of Cycling ‘74, the makers of the Max programming language. Come by Output HQ in downtown Los Angeles for an in-depth dive into how Tom works with the software that has empowered creative technologists for three decades. Tom will outline his journey from a farm in Tasmania, Australia to teaching and building sound based projects for Los Angeles’s world class artists within the music industry, how he fell into sound design and MaxMSP programming, and tips for staying open and meeting more like-minded creatives.

RSVP required. Confirmation of guest list will be sent to you by 5/20/19. Complimentary drinks and light hors d'oeuvres will be available.

Note: As the subject matter is for advanced professionals, we must keep the guest list at a cap and specifically tailored to the community of audio developers and programmers. Only confirmed guests will be sent the details on location and check-in.

Output Inc. is a boutique music software company designing innovative digital tools for today’s creative music makers. Launched in November 2013, Output has become the secret sauce behind so many songs and scores you’ve heard: Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Stranger Things, Game Of Thrones, Black Panther and so many more. Heralded by Create Digital Music as “dialing directly into the zeitgeist of what we want from production these days, and delivering it in an easy form.”

Tom Hall is a versatile sound designer, programmer, and artist. Over the past 15 years Tom has worked across a multitude of genres and sound domains, including sound design for companies such as Korg, Roland, and Arturia. In addition to that he's designed, built and programmed a multitude of custom music hardware and software devices for some of Los Angeles’s top composers, musicians, and bands, and develops content at Cycling ’74, makers of Max/MSP.

Hall’s open mindedness and ability to hone unique sounds from esoteric material has seen him present and collaborate with artists across the globe both with live audio/visual performances and installation.

The Audio Programmer started as a YouTube channel in 2017, where developers were able to learn how to create their own audio apps. Since then, it has grown into one of the largest audio development communities on the web, where developers of all levels are able to network and help each other. The Audio Programmer now consults for a number of music tech companies on a variety of topics, including recruitment practices, development, and trends within the industry.
