SonitusLIVE #10 Electronic Music Livestream

Terrific 10th AND PENULTIMATE edition of this series! A very fine mixture of video art, live coding, handmade electronics and boundary-pushing noises 🧡 from….
ADRIAN HOLDER
TASOS STAMOU
HELLOCATFOOD
NNJA RIOT
TOYOTA VANGELIS

Streaming live to youtube.com/tr-33n (individual artist video URLS to come) with back-up to twitch.tv/sonituslive

NB: For our final 2 editions we’ll be trialling a centralised ‘Pay What You Can’ PayPal pot to be distributed equally between all artists (instead of the usual individual donations) and supporting the promo with a few quid to get the word out.

OXIDIZE GLOBAL

One day of guided workshops for developers looking to start or improve their Embedded Rust skills, one day of talks by community members, and a two day development session focused on Hardware and Embedded subjects in Rust.

hellocatfood is the alias of Antonio Roberts, an artist and curator based in Birmingham, UK. For his live performances he uses software including Pure Data to explore the creative potential of algorithms, glitches, and feedback loops. He has provided visuals for the likes of MTV, Com Truise, Blood Sport, Steve Davis, Renick Bell and My Panda Shall Fly and at events including SXSW, Supersonic Festival, Barbican, Green Man festival and more.

AMRO20 – Nightline

Trial#1, Wolfgang Spahn, Post-Bio-Internet Collective, Antonio Roberts, Alexandra Cardenas

AMRO20 Nightline is streamed by dorfTV and radio FRO.

Eulerroom Equinox 2020 – hellocatfood & mxwx

Antonio Roberts (hellocatfood) and Maria Witek (mxwx) use Troop + Tidal Cycles to collaboratively live code experimental techno. Both relatively new to live coding music, they are working together to develop a high energy aesthetic that is both heavy and groovy.

Algorave Cafe Oto

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:

Deep Vain
Eye Measure
hellocatfood
Hortense
Jude Marcella
Mahalia Henry-Richards
Miri Kat
Renick Bell
Seth de Silva
Yaxu
+777000

+ 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

Algowave

Music for listening and drifting made with live coding.

Let algorithmic music put you into a hypnagogic state.

Line up:

Joanne Armitage
Joanne Armitage is a composer, improviser and researcher based in Leeds, England, notable for her practice in live coded music, and research into haptics in music performance. She performs internationally using the SuperCollider language, including as half of live coding duo ALGOBABEZ with Shelly Knotts associated with the Algorave movement. Her music is often performed in a club setting, while embracing error and uncertainty.

AlgoBabez

Jack Armitage
Jack Armitage is a designer, musician, artist, technologist and researcher, currently a PhD student in the Augmented Instruments Lab at Queen Mary University of London, and previously a research engineer at ROLI. He performs live coding music and visuals as Lil Data (PC Music), and produces music as half of the band Offer (with Adult Jazz vocalist Harry Burgess). He tutors in interaction design at the Royal College of Art, hosts workshops in live coding and digital musical instrument design, and contributes to open source projects.

VOU
Vou is a digital instrument maker and programmer based in the UK. He utilises a live-coding tracker to generate rhythmic patterns. The soundscapes that seek hypnotic states, patterns generated by functions and some of the codified tracks, being split up and re-constructed live.

Algorave Coventry

An evening of futuristic electronic rhythms, brought to you by some of the leading lights of the Algorave movement, including one of the artists behind our WONDER exhibition, Antonio Roberts. Experience the exciting and unpredictable phenomenon of algorithms brought to life as music and visuals.

“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, often projecting the lines of code onto the walls as they type. lt’s coding as improvisation and experiment..” – The Wire magazine

“Live coders write computer programs live, while the programs generate their music, but the focus is on people dancing and seriously enjoying themselves” – Dazed and Confused

Happy Mondays: Live coding workshop with Antonio Roberts

In this two-hour workshop Antonio Roberts will introduce you to the world of live coding. After a short look at how artists and musicians use code to make visuals and music in real time at Algoraves, you will have the chance to make your own visuals using the LiveCodeLab tool.

No coding experience necessary!

You will need:

A Windows, Mac or Linux laptop that can connect to the internet Google Chrome https://www.google.com/chrome/ or Firefox https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/
