Phoenix Cinema and Arts Centre in Leicester will be hosting its 3rd international conference for artists, musicians, students and teachers to explore software which enables the development of unique sounds, stunning visuals and engaging interactive media
Running from the 22nd – 24th March 2013, Code Control will bring together users Max, the popular programming software created by Cycling ’74.
With its straightforward building-block approach to programming, Max software enables people across a wide variety of disciplines to create exciting new work – musicians can create unique sound-making tools and instruments; artists can build installations which respond to viewer interaction; and exhibition designers can create educational exhibits which engage museum customers.
Cycling ’74 creates software for the specialized needs of artists, educators, and researchers working with audio, visual media, and physical computing. The company’s visual programming tools, Max, MSP Jitter, and Gen serve as the creative engine behind thousands of innovative projects. The company was formed in 1997 by David Zicarelli and has approximately 25 employees and consultants worldwide.
Based in the heart of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter, Phoenix houses state of the art cinemas, digital gallery spaces, a cafe bar and film production facilities. It is an educational charity with a remit to enhance moving image and new media work.\
