the difference between a high livel and low level programming is how  
close you are to the hardware and how much abstraction is going on.
on a scale from low to high, that woulde be for example:
assembly - C - Java/Python/whatever

max/pd are definitely high level, but especially they are a very  
particular kind of programming, sometimes referred to as dataflow  
it's very effective for quick prototyping and a complete pain in the  
ass for other things.
