Human culture is built on a history of replication. We copy to learn, to assimilate, to preserve and to magnify. How is this behaviour being transformed by advances in technology and what is the value of the authentic or the original today? This Friday Late, watch dance pieces to examine how human error impacts repetition and examine the role of copying in preserving cultural heritage. From architecture to online identities, explore duplication in the digital age.
I’ll be showing two videos titled Visually Similar:
Visually Similar is a video work that examines how images and videos posted online can be used to preserve history, but can also be remixed to create new narratives. In sharing our work online we make a permanent record of a point in time, which can then be used out of context.
I’ll be there IRL too if y’all have questions. Check out the rest of the awesome programme too!
This session will discuss Algorave: a global movement focussed on creating dance music through the writing and editing of algorithms. At an Algorave, performers live code and project their screens for the audience to see the creative process unfolding. Since it emerged in the UK in 2012, Algoraves have taken place around the world, with large communities developing in North America, Japan, Europe and Latin America. To understand how the scene has expanded, we will bring together leading performers from the community to discuss the systems they use and the sounds that they make.
In a world where algorithmic processes are becoming so embedded in our daily lives and increasingly opaque, we hope to uncover why live coding is so exciting!
Since emerging in the UK in 2012, Algorave has subsequently become a global movement with parties happening across the world. At an Algorave, performers live code and project their screens for the audience to see the creative process unfolding. It’s a truly audiovisual experience where sound and visuals merge together. This showcase will bring together an international host of leading performers from the Algorave scene. From minimal techno to bursts of noise all sounds and visuals will be generated through algorithms for your pleasure.
Part of Future Art and Culture produced by British Underground and supported by Arts Council England.
