Performance at the Live Code Festival in Karlsruhe, Germany.

Codetroller is an experimental project co-founded by musicians and sound artists Lina Bautista and Mauricio Iregui. As trained musicians interested in technologies, their project is based on the implementation of live coding in the context of live instrumental music, improvisation, and field recording adventures. Codetroller takes advantage of simple programming in Max/MSP and Pure Data to process acoustic signals and generate complex layers of soundscapes, beats, and vocals. Continuous data is sent from one computer to another so that each performer can generate changes in the other’s environment and synch processes and temporal events. When Codetroller is not performing in a live concert they are coding in places like buses, trains and restaurants where they utilize the sound richness of the spaces as raw materials for their compositions. cargocollective.com/codetroller

The festival took place at the Karlsruhe University of Music from 19th to 21st of April 2013, organized by: the IMWI (Institute for Musicology and Music Informatics) and ComputerStudio, the local live coding band Benoît and the Mandelbrots and members of the live coding organization TOPLAP. The weekend long festival was dedicated to live coding – a rising discipline of computer music – in order to exchange ideas, demonstrate systems, enjoy concerts and establish networks of people and institutions interested in the research and performance of the practice. Although the main focus of the festival was live coding of audio the festival will also promote live coding in other disciplines as well.
