Gateshead Algorave – 14th March 2015
This is a screen and audio recording of my SuperCollider techno set for the gateshead Algorave, which also featured Ballotts, JoAnne, Miss Blueberry, Section_9, Tim Shaw, Yeah You, Alo Allik, Sick Lincoln and Mariam Rezeai.
“Algorave is made from “sounds wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive conditionals“. These days just about all electronic music is made using software, but with artificial barriers between the people creating the software algorithms and the people making the music. Using systems built for creating algorithmic music, such as IXI Lang, overtone, puredata, Max/MSP, SuperCollider, Impromptu, Fluxus and Tidal, these barriers are broken down, and musicians are able to compose and work live with their music as algorithms. This has good and bad sides, but a different approach leads to interesting places.”
