I’m very happy to have a month’s residency in Barcelona coming up, starting 22nd July 2013. I’ll be running workshops (probably at the beginning, while locals are still in town) and working on some new things. It’s produced by L’ull Cec for Hangar, in the context of the Addicted2Random project, which is funded by the European culture […]
Busy times at the moment, but a quick pause to link to the afore-mentioned full interview in Dazed and Confused by the fine Stephen Fortune. I think the on-line version is a bit longer than in print. There’ll likely be another algorave related article in Wired magazine (the UK version I think) in the next month or […]
I’m having a bit of a breather at the moment, but here’s some of the things I am up to over the Summer: 16th May 2013 Another Algorave on the MS Stubnitz. The last one was masses of fun, and really looking forward to seeing what the next one turns up.. May 27-30 2013 I won’t […]
Be sure to read the comments – Sam Aaron makes some important corrective points… The below left as documentation of thinking-in-progress. There is now an exciting resurgence of interest in live programming languages within certain parts of the software engineering and programming language theory community. In general the concerns of liveness from “programming experience design” and […]
After posting at length about the history of my musical pattern representation, I thought I’d better show some demos and explain a bit about how it works in practice. Demonstrating music tech is difficult, because it seems to be impossible to listen to demos without making aesthetic judgements. The below is not meant to be […]
TL;DR I’m now describing algorave music as functions from time ranges to lists of events, with arbitrary time precision, where you can query continuously varying patterns for more detail by specifying narrower time ranges. For more practical demo-based description of my current system see this post. I’ve been restructuring and rewriting my Haskell pattern library […]
Looking forward to 2013, some things I’m up to so far: 15th Feb: talk and solo performance at the Node symposium, Frankfurt Late Feb (date tbc): slub at the Bartlett nexus, London 22-24th Feb: slub at the network music festival, Birmingham 5th March: Talk at the Leeds Psychogeography Group – my sister is doing this one now! 14-15th March (tbc): Talk + […]
I’ve been recording some experiments with a new iteration of my livecoding system, and putting them up over on lurk.org. I’m going to continue doing that but here’s the latest recording for the tired of clicking: All and any feedback is very welcome.
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.
