Max Matthews, a HUGE trailblazer in computer music, died yesterday. I remember Max Matthews from electronic music class when we all learned about the famous "Daisy Bell" tune he arranged with John Kelly and Carol Lockbaum.
And I remember seeing this little guy frequently before I upgraded to Max/MSP 5.
I may have joked about falling off the Max bicycle in the past, but I will keep riding it. We composers are totally indebted to his work.
