ŁH: DJs of the future don’t spin records—they write code.

MM: (fact “Beats-per-minute is rendered in seconds.”

  (->> [{:time 90}] (where :time (bpm 90))) =>

    [{:time 60}])

 

Red, blue, green, yellow, purple text is moving and changing; lightened up in orange, copy & paste, in a heartbeat, disappearing in the rhythm of the cursor. This is what coded music looks like. 

We are witnessing a revolution. Or maybe it’s the opposite, a return to the backend of music production, where the possibilities of coded music are open and endless.

 

tickets: 10 zł / available only at the entrance

Calum Vaughan

Calum Vaughan (AKA Calcium) is an algorithmic music research student and lecturer from De Montfort University, Leicester, England. His research concerns the use of Markov Chains and other algorithms to create eclectic and high energy electronic music performances, with every minute of performance representing a fresh minute of novel music that has never been heard before. Max/MSP and Ableton are used together to generate music and to provide a platform for the concept of 'semi real-time', which allows the performer to moderate and assess the algorithmic output before the audience can hear it - much like DJing, but with algorithms! ...

Nesso

Nesso is a musician based in Rome always searching new fields of experimentation. He started in a basement surrounded by synths and welding equipment, building his DIY modular system, making electronic music and performing with the rest of his label: Mossa Records. He is now focused on Livecoding and on creating immersive interactive installations....

Zell

Zell started writing code as a developer in a boring company. When he discovered that coding and visuals could be merged in a live act, he exclaimed "Woah!" and he stayed up all night playing with pixels. He uses Hydra, a tool developed by Olivia Jack....

The deconstruction of instruments, music genres and sounds; 2. The synthesis of sound in a Pure Data interpreter (in a Vanilla version, allowing to avoid existing solutions). | | || | | || | | | | || | | || | | | | || | | || | | | | || | | || | | | | || | | || | | | | || | | || | | | | || | | || | | | | || | | || | | | | || | ...

Olbos

Olbos is from Rome and is part of Mossa Records, but he's temporarily studying Sonology at The Hague Conservatory. He did fourth world ambient music, free-form noise, compositions for theater plays and weird dj mixes. In live coding performances, his focus is put into Euclidean patterns....

Guiot

Guiot makes noise on her laptop, on stage and onscreen. Her improvisations are commentaries on the single procedures that comprise the strata of a composition: sequence, repetition, polimeter, cluster, swarm. She's part of the Algorave movement, showing off her code live and on stream....
