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.
OFFAL is an international collective of women laptop performers who devise performances involving multi‐location collaborative improvisation. The group was formed in 2015 in response to research around gender in digital technology and laptop ensemble practice.
Alexandra Cardenas is a Colombian composer and improviser now based in Berlin, who has followed a path from Western classical composition to improvisation and live electronics. More recently Alexandra has been invited to talk about and perform live coding at events such as the Berlin based Transmediale festival and Ableton™ sponsored Loop symposium.
