That was fun.. First, full slub (Dave, Ade and I) at the Mozilla party. The most interested crowd we’ve had, it was hard to get any live coding done between all the questions! Dave collected some photos from the many that appeared online.. Then to Mexico City for the week-long /* vivo */ live coding festival. […]
Some recent live recordings, this from InterFace2012 in Birmingham: and this from the BEAM Festival: I asked the engineers to cut the sound at 15 and 20 minutes respectively.

Here’s an interview which appeared in the excellent Neural magazine in June 2007 (issue 27). A scan is also available. Live Coding: I think in text Alex McLean Alessandro Ludovico: The term ‘live coding’ is usually meant to describe the coding of music on the fly. It seems a process of unveiling the (running) machine […]
I’m guest editing an issue of the Computer Music Journal on live coding together with Julian Rohrhuber and Nick Collins. Really excited about this already, despite the submissions deadline being some eight months away from now.. The call for proposals is below. We are excited to announce a call for papers for a special issue of […]
A couple of weekends ago I collaborated on a performance with Hester Reeve at the LoveBytes festival for the Live Notation project. As I was struggling with my new “smoothdirt” live coding language, Hester moved around the cinema carrying out actions including with bells, pebbles in her mouth and a large rock. This aspect seems […]
I’ve got some sounds out of my new live coding system, codenamed “smoothdirt”. Here’s an mp3 for you. The sounds are triggered with some C and structured and scheduled with some Haskell. Plenty more to do, but already really happy hearing embedded juxtoposition of timescales, smooth multichannel panning (2 channels in this test, but I’m playing […]
With some minor corrections done, my thesis is finally off to the printers. I’ve made a PDF available, and here’s the abstract: We consider the artist-programmer, who creates work through its description as source code. The artist-programmer grandstands computer language, giving unique vantage over human-computer interaction in a creative context. We focus on the human […]
