R Tyler is a San Francisco-based algorave performer, electronic music producer, and visual artist. In 2023 he was invited to perform algorithmic dance music at SXSW, Stanford CCRMA, Spectra Studio Los Angeles, Indexical Santa Cruz, Gray Area Festival SF, and bi-coastal audiovisual events with Livecode.NYC, AV Club SF, and Club Code.

His microtonal techno EP ‘Xuixo’ was released on the UK xenharmonic record label Split Notes with the artist alias ‘Relyt R’. As R Tyler, he released Live-Code Volumes 1 and 2, featuring original dance music from his live TidalCycles sets. Most recently he was included on a remix EP for DJ_Dave, and was on the winning team for the AGI House’s Generative AI Hackathon with invited speakers Sergey Brin and Grimes.

His recurring musical interests include danceable live-coding, machine learning for sound design, odd time signatures, microtonal harmonies, and jazz keyboard solos translated into code. He has started composing music from English text prompts with a custom linguistic mapping written in Python, converting vowels into synthesizer notes and consonants into synthetic drum sounds.
