The Algorave Collective returns to the North East for the 4th year running to present an eclectic mix of live code-generated EDM and visuals. This year in a special Chemical Algorave edition, algoravers will team up with scientists from Newcastle University to integrate chemical structures into their sets.
The Algorave is part of 'Molecular Soundscapes’ a collaborative project between artist Shelly Knotts and chemist Agnieszka Bronowska, exploring the potential of manipulating chemical data into sound patterns and structures.
Algoraves embrace the alien sounds of raves from the past, and introduce alien, futuristic rhythms and beats made through strange, algorithm-aided processes. It’s up to the good people on the dancefloor to help the musicians make sense of this and do the real creative work in making a great party.

Algorave - Bluedot Festival
Bluedot with OVO Energy is an award-winning festival of discovery at the grounds of a deep space observatory. Set against a backdrop of the iconic Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank, bluedot combines a truly stellar line-up of music with a ground-breaking programme of live science experiments, expert talks and immersive artworks.
An Algorave is a party where electronic music is generated live from algorithms. The word was coined around 2012, initially as a kind of joke, but has since taken hold with Algoraves taking place in over 40 cities around the world.
At an Algorave, the creation of algorithms are brought into the experience of the music itself. This process is opened up by projecting the code on screens in the venue, so audience members can see how the music they hear is being made. This is often complimented by algorithmically generated visuals projected alongside the code.

No Copyright Infringement Intended Curator's Tour
Join No Copyright Infringement Intended curator Antonio Roberts for a guided tour of the exhibition, followed by a chance to ask questions about the show. The tour will be preceded by a short presentation called Ctrl + C, looking at the one-way system of cultural appropriation by corporations.
The tour is free to attend. No booking necessary.
