Algorave Bristol

The Jean Golding Institute at the University of Bristol has teamed up with a group of live coders to put together this exciting evening event.

“The scene at an algorave is often what you’d expect from any good techno night – a dark room, engaging visuals……a decent, bass-heavy speaker set-up, and lots of people ready to dance….. performers at algoraves respond to each other and the audience in real time, projecting the lines of code onto the walls as they type. lt’s coding as improvisation and experiment…..” – The Wire magazine

Algorave is a combination of ‘algorithms’ and ‘rave’, the opportunity to dance to alien rhythms and visuals, all created from code before your eyes. All code is projected onto walls so you will see what the performers are doing – taking the “black-boxing” out of electronic music. The Algorave scene is fast-growing reaching over 50 cities internationally over six years. Algorave champions female performers and is committed to maintaining an equal gender balance.

This Algorave will take place at The Island – a unique basement venue in an old police station including cells and an exercise yard. In this space you will dance to the best UK live-code performers and encounter algorithmic music and light installations within the space.

Cheltenham Science Festival Algorave

An Algorave is a party where electronic music is generated live from algorithms. The word was coined around 2012, initially as a joke, but has since taken hold with Algoraves taking place in over 40 cities around the world.

Drop in Live Coding

8.45–9.45pm
Computer programming is often portrayed as a solitary activity, but it can also be used to express yourself and build social connections through a shared experience of music. Drop in and have a go yourself.

Festival Party Night

10–11.30pm
Alex McLean, Joanne Armitage (from Algobabez) and Joe Wilk write the code to make you dance, with Antonio Roberts on visuals.

Eintritt frei

Algorave! Im Rahmen der Ausstellung »Open Codes. Leben in digitalen Welten« und in Kooperation mit der Digitalen Kunstfabrik e.V. feiern wir zu live gecodeter Musik und algorithmischen Visuals – feiert mit!

Algorave? Wenn KünstlerInnen neue Software entwickeln und ihre Algorithmen Musik erzeugen, dann eröffnen sie neue Zugänge zur elektronischen Musik. Bei einem Algorave sind wir live dabei und erleben direkt mit, wie Musik durch Code auf der Bühne entsteht. Über Projektionen lässt sich der Prozess mitverfolgen, wie aus Software Algorithmen tanzbare Sounds werden.

Algorave: Am 21.04. beehren bahnbrechende PerformerInnen der internationalen Algorave-Szene unseren ZKM_Musikbalkon und durchfluten unsere Sinne mit Codes. Ob Fans experimenteller elektronischer Musik, Computerkultur-Begeisterte oder völlige Programmierlaien: Algoraves sind ein Fest für Auge, Ohr und Tanzbein!

The New Projectionists: VJing, AV Performance and Post-cinematic Projection

A day of panel talks and performances about VJing, live cinema and audio-visual performance. This symposium will bring together academics, artists and VJs to discuss the role of projection in their work, and the current state of AV performance in the UK. A number of thematically focussed panel talks will take place in Centrala, Birmingham on Saturday 24th February, followed by an evening of AV performances from 7pm – 10pm, and ending with a VJ Jam until late. Running in parallel at Vivid Projects there will be a number of projection-based installations. This event is a collaboration between The Projection Project, an AHRC funded research project based at the University of Warwick, and Lighttouch Festival.

Confirmed speakers/artists include: Toby Harris (*spark), Rebecca Smith (Urbanprojections), Miri Kat, Antonio Roberts, Raquel Meyers, Rod Maclachlan, Guy Edmonds, Blanca Regina, Flatpack Film Festival, Sean Clarke (Test Card Manchester), Richard Wallace.

Come along to Vivid Projects on the evening of Fri Feb 23 for a warm-up party with loud music and VJs.

All Your Bass Algorave

Algorave breaks down the artificial barriers which many types of music-making software bring, allowing musicians to compose and work live with their music as algorithms. This is no new idea but Algoraves’ focus on humans making and dancing to music leads to a good party.

Algomech Algorave

At AlgoMech 2017 we aim to take Algorave to the next level, bringing together some of the best algorithmic (and mechanical) dance music producers and VJs, playing over Sheffield’s fiendish DangerNoise soundsystem, with immersive projections covering the walls of Millennium Gallery. As with the rest of the festival we’ll be mixing mechanisms with the algorithms, showcasing repetitive dance music made from handmade robots as well as live code.

Algorave Green Man

An algorave is a party where electronic music and visuals are generated live from algorithms. The word was coined around 2012, initially as a 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.

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.

BUMP

Ask anybody something unforgettable about BUMP 2016, and they’ll probably say the afterparty: rooftop, drinks and tunes. We’re planning something extra this year…

During this year’s afterparty, there will be an Algorave live performance. Experience how the Algobabez, Alex McLean and Antonio Roberts create music and visuals with code, live on stage. One of the Algobabez will be joining us live from Australia and sync her code with the Live Code at the rooftop!

Algorave Supersonic Festival

After Mothwasp’s visual performance, the Wilde stage turns into an Algorave, brought to you by Supersonic and Vivid Projects curator Antonio Roberts. If you haven’t heard of or been to an algorave, be sure to check it out; an algorave is a party where electronic music and visuals are generated live from algorithms. The word was coined around 2012, initially as a joke, but has since taken hold with Algoraves taking place in over 40 cities around the world.

Supersonic’s Algorave features artists Heavy Lifting and Blood Sport, presenting a collision and mutation of their current work in a textural and improvisatory reinterpretation of the ‘B2B’ DJ set.

Heavy Lifting is Lucy writing confused live code in TidalCycles and FoxDot – divinely inspired by toads & pickled eggs she bends time signatures to create not-quite-techno rhythms. Also a member of algorave band TYPE and co-founder of the creative collective SONA.

Blood Sport are an aggro-beat trio based in Sheffield; consisting of Alex Keegan (guitar & octatrack), Sam Parkin (drums) and Nick Potter (baritone & vocals). Creating a fractured dancefloor, Blood Sport’s work mixes pre-recorded and live performance using live-coding program Tidal Cycles.

Heavy Lifting will live-code textures and rhythms using the sample-pack (to be publicly released this year), and Blood Sport will respond with music. This set was originally born out of a request from Blood Sport for Heavy Lifting to create a remix of one of their tracks, using a micro-sample pack Blood Sport had created for live-coding program TidalCycles; and after an outing at the Algomech Festival closing party, both acts have begun to work together on regular live and DJ driven performances.

Miri Kat continues the algorave: an AV Noise Artist working with Max/MSP, processing & found sound. Focuses on the creation of unique sounds and immersive multimedia, equipped with a loved of hacking, cats and mocha.

Closing the Algorave is BITLIP; a veteran livecoder and part-time Algoraver who makes downtempo techno collages out of strange samples, analogue-sounding synths, and broken breakbeats straight out of the late 90s.

Supersonic’s Algorave is hosted by Vivid Projects, a collaborative space supporting media arts practice. Based in Birmingham, they encourage innovation, risk and experimentation in artistic practice and work with artists and producers across disciplines.

Algorave is curated by hellocatfood – the alias of Antonio Roberts, a New Media artist and Curator based in Birmingham at Vivid. His artwork uses glitch art, hacking and technology-driven processes to explore issues surrounding copyright, remixing and free culture. For his live visuals he (mis)uses a range of programming languages to create glitched, broken visuals. He has provided visuals for the likes of MTV, Com Truise, Elmo Sexwhistle, Steve Davis, Henry Homesweet and My Panda Shall Fly.
