Phoenix and Cycling ’74 are seeking to award three commissions of £2,000 to support the development and installation of new work for the Code Control festival.


The Code Catalyst Award is for artists working with Max. We are looking for entirely new work or the development of a work in progress that has not been displayed before. Each commission will be exhibited at Phoenix during Code on the 22-24th March 2013.

The three key elements to a successful proposal will be:

  •  Intelligent use of Max/MSP
  • Intelligent use of Budget
  • Intelligent use of Space

The award of £2,000 covers your fee and the cost of developing and installing the work at Phoenix. Travel, accommodation and hospitality will be paid separately.

Commissions are not limited to work solely made in Max but must include the use of Max/MSP/Jitter or M4L. Work that mixes these technologies with other hard or software is encouraged.

cube exsmallWe would like you to think about our space while planning your submission. Please take the time to visit our 3D Phoenix to get an idea of what it’s like here, and what spaces might work best with what you would like to do. (Please note that this 3D model is in its Beta phase so be patient with any glitches – any feedback on its usability would also be greatly appreciated.)

We are primarily interested in installation work, however if you have a great idea for a performance, application or other type of project we would still like to hear from you.

The Catalyst awards are supported by Arts Council England and Cycling ’74.

The Deadline for submissions is Friday 8th February. If you are interested in this opportunity please fill out the form below:
