Nearly ten years on since the first Algorave, worldwide instantiations of the event continue to connect an international community of audio-visual artists experimenting and playing with algorithmic tools. Algorave spans programming paradigms to celebrate the collaborative culture of open source and experimental sound while maintaining a strong root in dance music, making it a space naturally inclined to share, teach, and encourage self-learning. Algorave is many things and continues to evolve. Many parties, workshops, meet-ups, and festivals later, Algorave remains a lively crossing point for experimentation, but more importantly for fun.
Bringing this ethos to Cafe Oto, the evening will showcase work by audio and visual artists:

Expect a relaxed atmosphere and quick-fire sets from ambient to gabber and back. At its best, Algorave softens the tech wall of mystery, opening exchange between performers and audience.
ALGORITHMS ARE INFECTING DISCOS AND RUINING LIVES
