Live coding for dancing :
THE SHAPE OF BITS TO COME
Wikipedia says :
‘ Live coding (sometimes referred to as ‘on-the-fly programming’, ‘just in time programming’ and related term ‘live programming’) is a programming practice centred upon the use of improvised interactive programming. Live coding is often used to create sound and image based digital media, and is particularly prevalent in computer music, combining algorithmic composition with improvisation. Typically, the process of writing is made visible by projecting the computer screen in the audience space, with ways of visualising the code an area of active research. There are also approaches to human live coding in improvised dance. Live coding techniques are also employed outside of performance, such as in producing sound for film or audio/visual work for interactive art installations.
Live coding is also an increasingly popular technique in programming-related lectures and conference presentations, and has been described as a “best practice” for computer science lectures by Mark Guzdial.’
‘A rave (from the verb: to rave) is a large party or festival featuring performances by disc jockeys (colloquially called DJs) and occasionally live performers playing electronic music, particularly electronic dance music (EDM). Music played at raves include house, trance, techno, drum and bass, hardcore, hardstyle and other forms of electronic dance music. The music is amplified with a large sound reinforcement system, typically with large subwoofers to produce a deep bass sound. The music is accompanied by laser light shows, projected images, visual effects and smoke machines.
Rave culture originated mostly from acid house music parties in the mid-to-late 1980s in the Chicago area in the United States. After Chicago house artists began experiencing overseas success, it quickly spread to the United Kingdom, Central Europe, Australia and the rest of the United States.’
Live coding + Rave = Algorave , well except maybe for the smokemachines, and we have not seen any lasershows so far. The visuals are most of the time the codes projected onto a screen. Sometimes they are accompanied by live coded graphics. And a Algorave is not about DJ’s of course.
