Happy to be hosting this symposium as part of AlgoMech festival, featuring
top live coders Kate Sicchio and Dave Griffiths. Should be a very nice
exploration of pattern and movement!
Symposium on Dancing and Braiding
17th May 2019
Site gallery, Sheffield, UK
Tickets now available
- £27.50 (£13.75 concs), including lunch and refreshments
Launching AlgoMech Festival <https://algomech.com/>, an interdisciplinary
symposium bringing together perspectives from digital media, choreography &
dance technology, traditional Andean and Ancient Greek textiles,
e-textiles, philology, live coding and architecture.
Through talks, discussion and performance, contributors to the symposium
will consider their work in the context of interlacing within and between
textiles, e-textiles, pattern, structure and movement, including dance.
Interfaces between materials, craft technologies, digital engineering,
responsive systems, embodied communications, threads, inter-weaving,
intertwining, braiding and building will provide a rich vein of dialogue,
experimentation and recent practice-led outcomes.
10:00 - 17:00 - Symposium (coffee from 09:30)
Note that following the symposium will be the AlgoMech festival exhibition
launch event with dance performance and screening. See
https://algomech.com/2019/ for details

Is there anyone running Tidalcycles in RaspPi3. I have tried to install in
on Raspbian-stretch but no luck yet. On the SuperCollider side I am running
SuperDirt which loads okay but after a while I get a Jack error message. I
haven’t managed to make any sound btw, just run SuperDirt at this point.
Atom doesn’t work in RP but I am using Troop to interface with
Tidalcycles. Should there be any known issues and workarounds please share
In case of interest to scholars of live coding, or performers seeking something to bounce off:
Amongst the detritus of Click Nilson's disorganised belongings, I recently discovered the score linked below, which lays out plans for a live codable 'happening' to take place at some point in the future.
(for 1 or more performers, 1 or more live coders, and 0 or more audience)
"This happening is not yet happening, but the plans laid out herein should make its happening happen.
I happened to happen upon this happening idea for a happening through happenstance, and since it was not yet happening, planned its happening to happen in 2019, or thereabouts."
