Sam is a Brooklyn based developer and creative coder. After graduating from Brown University in 2010, he joined Cycling ’74 to work on Max/MSP, the visual programming language for audiovisual composition. While there, he built Mira, an iPad app for tactile control of a synchronized Max patch, which has since been ported to the web. Since then, Sam has built Rhythm Necklace, an iPhone app that experiments with circular representations of musical rhythms. Rhythm Necklace has been featured in WIRED, Creator’s Project, Creative Applications and Synthtopia.
Sam likes to teach programming and composition, a lot. He has taught Max at the Monthly Music Hackathon in New York City, at California College for the Arts, at IRCAM in Paris, and at workshops in San Francisco, Tokyo, Jerusalem, the Hague and London.
