#AlgoraveAssembly is a day that brings together invited speakers and performers operating at the forefront of the Algorave scene - panel discussion, live coding masterclasses for local Year 12 students, and Concert Hall performance and keynotes will showcase the latest developments in this emerging form of musical practice.
A public lunchtime concert, featuring OFFAL and Alexandra Cardenas, aims to promote the concept of live coding and some of its related art forms, simultaneously online, and to a live Concert Hall audience:
OFFAL will create an improvised performance of electronic music using live coding software, TidalCycles, accompanied by responsive visuals projected on the Concert Hall’s giant 8m screen. Alexandra Cardenas will first perform with OFFAL, and then on her own, using SuperCollider, software similar to TidalCycles, also designed for audio synthesis and algorithmic composition.
Full details of the free lunchtime concert can be found on the University of Leeds International Concert Series website
The day, organised by the School of Music’s Operations Manager, Dan Merrick, concludes with a spectacular, livestreamed Algorave in the School of Music’s new Concert Hall Foyer venue featuring live coding by Alex McLean, Joanne Armitage, Alexandra Cardenas, Ryan Kirkbride, Dorien Schampaert, experimental and breakbeat DJ’ing by NikNak (MA Electronic and Computer Music student), DJ Linkz (Dr Alinka Greasley, School of Music) and guests.
