Richard Dudas’ English translation of Volume II of Electronic Music and Sound Design – Theory and Practice with Max and MSP by Alessandro Cipriani and Maurizio Giri was published in January, 2014 and is now available for purchase directly from the ConTempoNet website, linked above. Both volumes provide a fantastic in-road to learning the techniques of computer music and how these techniques can be applied to musical projects using the Max/MSP environment – highly recommended!!
