Music by Pong - Masters Students discuss their projects

In the video shown below, three Masters students studying Interactive Media discussed their final project for module CS6221 (Programming Protocols for Musical Systems). The project involved developing a game of Pong in Processing to control the generation of sound in Max/MSP and Logic. After weeks of challenging yet rewarding work, students presented their project in the postgraduate studio at the University of Limerick. The video was produced by Laura Maye, but all credit for editing this video goes to Rianne Links, Laurie Skelton and Dominic Perera, well done to you all!
