MaxScore aka LiveScore is a complete solution for real-time composition and notation in Max and Max for Live. The current version includes a music editor capable of standard and graphical notation via the Picster graphics editor. It offers extended support for microtones which sets the environment apart from most commercially available solutions such as Finale and Sibelius, while the Scorepions plugin system, based on simple Max patches, greatly expands the functionality of the program. The workshop will focus on the basic features of the MaxScore/LiveScore editor by demonstrating how to transcribe and edit Live clips as well as notate music in non-standard tunings. To this end, a short excerpt from a microtonal composition by Easley Blackwood will be notated.
MaxScore is based on JMSL, the Java Music Specification Language developed by Nick Didkovsky and Phil Burk.

Georg Hajdu, born in Göttingen, Germany in 1960, is among the first composers of his generation dedicated to the combination of music, science and computer technology. After studies in Cologne and at the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT), he received his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley. In 1996, following residencies at IRCAM and the ZKM, Karlsruhe, he co-founded the ensemble WireWorks with his wife Jennifer Hymera group specializing in the performance of electro-acoustic music. In 1999, he produced his full-length opera Der Sprung. In May 2002, his Internet performance environment Quintet.net was employed in a Munich Biennale opera performance. In addition to his compositions, which are characterized by a pluralistic attitude and have earned him several international prizes, the IBM-prize of the Ensemble Modern among them, Georg Hajdu published articles on several topics on the borderline of music and science. His areas of interest include multimedia, microtonality, algorithmic, interactive and networked composition. Currently, Georg Hajdu is professor of multimedia composition at the Hamburg School of Music and Theater.
