On Thursday 5th I’ll be back in London to perform at an Algorave at Cafe Oto
I’ll be playing an audio set alongside music and visuals from Deep Vain, Eye Measure, Hortense, Jude Marcella, Mahalia Henry-Richards, Miri Kat, Renick Bell, Seth De Silva, Yaxu, +777000 and hmurd.
Tickets are £15 plus booking for and can purchased from the Cafe Oto website.
Last time I was at Cafe Oto was 11 years ago for an Openlab workshop + performance which helped me on my path to explore programming as a creative practice, so it’s nice to be back but this time performing. 🙂
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:

+ special DJ set from hmurd
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
