Dancing to Code, Coding to Dance

Research output: Performances, compositions and other non-textual formsPerformance



‘Livecoding’ is a practice where creative artists who work with computer code perform live, often producing music and/or visuals, with the audience typically able to watch the evolution of the code on a projected screen. ‘Algorave’ is a subgenre where the aim is to produce beat-driven music and/or visuals for dancing.

This presentation outlines current practice and research in the area of livecoded music and visuals, with particular reference to both educational contexts and the algorave scene. It also affords particpants the opportunity to explore and express their understanding of digital practices in an embodied way through unstructured social dance.
