This session will discuss Algorave: a global movement focussed on creating dance music through the writing and editing of algorithms. At an Algorave, performers live code and project their screens for the audience to see the creative process unfolding. Since it emerged in the UK in 2012, Algoraves have taken place around the world, with large communities developing in North America, Japan, Europe and Latin America. To understand how the scene has expanded, we will bring together leading performers from the community to discuss the systems they use and the sounds that they make.
In a world where algorithmic processes are becoming so embedded in our daily lives and increasingly opaque, we hope to uncover why live coding is so exciting!
Please bring and laptop and some headphones.
