Claude Heiland-AllenClaude Heiland-Allen is an artist from London interested in the complex emergent behaviour of simple systems, unusual geometries, and mathematical aesthetics. Clive is an audio live-coding skeleton, implemented in C. It supports a two-phase edit-commit coding cycle allowing long-lived signal processing graphs to be modified without interrupting the sound. Performance with Clive usually involves pre-preparation, from simple unit generators up to more complete compositions. The live-coding aspect involves editing a file in the performer’s favourite text editor, with the act of saving with Ctrl-S or other shortcut being timed to allow the new code to start executing in sync after the latency of compilation. Estela Oliva presents CLON Clon is a hybrid art and new media project by Estela Oliva.

Mowgli and the slate pipe banjo draggersPresenting Mariskao, an experimental audiovisual improvised performance featuring the 'one is more not four' midi enabled custom one string bass and the Zenoid, an audiovisual groovebox. The piece is in a continual state of development and evolution and each performance is different to the previous. Despite the minimal, single stringed format of the bass, it is able to draw on an infinite palette of sounds using contemporary computer technology. These sounds are layered during the performance and synchronized with the sounds and images produced by the Zenoid, which draws its inspiration from analogue synthesisers, creating audio and video simultaneously from a single control surface. Although some sound-reaction is present on the video facet, it is not a visualization of the audio as such, but something that is generated in parallel through abstract synesthetic correspondences between sonic and visual parameters. Christian Duka & Marco MaldarellaPresenting Holistic 3. HOLISTIC is a collaboration between sound artist Christian Duka and Visual Artist Marco Maldarella. Through the intuitive combination of A/V art in live improvisation, each instance of HOLISTIC explores concepts relevant to our present era in relation to the human condition. Holistic 3.0 - Noise Culture will be an immersive audio/visual experience made to portrait the delirious plethora of views, thoughts, opinions, aesthetics and perspectives of the modern, interconnected digital age - in all of their diversities and contrasts. Its aim is to give voice to the noise generated by each and every individuated humanoid aliens inhabiting planet Earth in 2018. ArtFutura Since January 1990, ArtFutura, the festival of Digital Culture and Creativity, has explored the most interesting projects and ideas that have come up on the international panorama of New Media, Virtual Reality, Interactive Design and Digital Animation.

It provides a platform to exchange best practice, give advice and support to less experienced teachers, answering practical concerns and keeping them abreast of the latest curriculum changes. A one-stop shop for like-minded professionals who seek help and information. It is free to take part and is facilitated through a closed on-line group, safeguarding the conversations of the teaching staff. The idea of a 'Teacher's Centre' is a response to the lack of local and national specialist support and diminishing Continuing Professional Development with the demise of local authority advisers ASTs, lead practitioners and supporting organisations. The Centre utilises new technologies, not requiring a physical space in new times, but providing the same high quality service that our traditional teachers centres were recognised for. The Food Teachers Centre is a place of creative and innovative ideas and action practical solutions learning and sharing To join the closed group, simply visit    Bright Ideas Food and Health Consulting Ltd  Registered Office 69-71 East Street Epsom Surrey KT17 1BP    Registered No 9096275    VAT No 189 4024 84
