A Festival of (Musical) Algorithms

I’ve heard of computing conferences, and music festivals, and even computer music conferences.  I love the idea of a music festival where there are “Live Algorithms Concerts.”  This is what “Computing for Everyone” is about for me — when computing becomes part of what you do. Not necessarily invisibly–I like the idea that these musicians use algorithms, recognize that, and call them that.

This April will see musicians, artists and coders come to London for a festival of what can be done with the SuperCollider audio programming environment.

Tickets are available from £70 <http://www.sc2012.org.uk/tickets/> for a whole week of sonic inspiration featuring:

==MUSIC==

– LIVE ALGORITHMS CONCERT – three specially-commissioned musicians

will be improvising live on stage, collaborating with

responsive musical algorithms for the first time.

PLEASE SEE OUR CALL FOR CODERS:

– LIVECODE EVENING – codefaced people hacking music in front of your eyes:
