Live Coding – 11th December 2014 – ICMuS Student Concert

For my Major Project this year I am developing the discipline of Live Coding using the SuperCollider programming language.

After practicing live electronic music for a few years i’ve decided to do this partly to perform using Open Source software, but also as live coding allows me to have a much more tactile approach to electronic performance. Previously my performances had been very predetermined, in the sense that most of the material I play was fixed with relatively little scope for determining the arc of the performance on the fly.

With live coding I can to a much greater degree merge electronic music performance and improvisation, by playing music determined by code and algorithms written live, it gives me scope to improvise performances, as well as using programmed randomness to perform electronic music that organically grows and can be edited on the fly, in real time
