About

I’m Alex and this is my blag.

I am a research fellow and deputy director of ICSRiM (the Interdisciplinary Centre for Scientific Research in Music) in Leeds.

I live in Sheffield, UK.

I am one third of the live coding band slub, and half each of the spam-pop band Silicone Bake (with Jake Harries), algorave duo algorithmic yorkshire (with Ash Sagar), the Hession/McLean Duo (with Paul Hession) and Canute (with Matthew Yee-King). I also work with Kate Sicchio on the code+dance project Sound Choreographer <> Body Code.

I completed my PhD thesis “Artist Programmers and Programming Languages for the Arts” in late 2011, supervised by Geraint Wiggins within the ISMS group.

I’m co-founder of ChordPunch, an on-line record label promoting algorithmic music, and also event promoters algorave, software art repository runme and on-line forum lurk. I’m also co-founder of TOPLAP (a temporary organisation for the promotion of live algorithm programming), co-organiser of dorkbotsheffield, and latterly dorkbotlondon.

You can see what I’m up to on my list of projects, and list of events.

You can contact me by emailing (my first name)@slab.org . I’m also on facebook, twitter and occasionally on irc.freenode.net as yaxu.
