Performance by LiveCoding hero Alex McLean
Making people dance to code since the year 2001, Alex combines music, art, research and event organisation to try to work out and re-imagine what computer programming is for.
Sat 27th May 10am- Sun 28th May 5pm
TidalCycles (or Tidal for short) is a language for exploring pattern, a bit like knitting patterns but for music. In a way it is a Luddite system, a stripping away of graphical user interfaces to reveal the underlying computer as a machine made entirely from patterns of language, and using those patterns to create music. Through this workshop we’ll be exploring the sonic complexities that can emerge from simple code, and in particular, patterns of repetition, symmetry and interference.
