Hybrid Live Coding Interfaces 2021: Beyond the Screen Pt. 1

Hybrid Live Coding Interfaces: Beyond the Screen aims to bring together current thinking on how live coding techniques can be combined with other algorithmic practices, and augmented and hybridised with gestural and physical interfaces. It will take place online, over six hours of workshops spread over two days on 28-29th July 2020 (16:00 - 19:00 UTC, both days).



Curated by Montreal-based artist Kofi Oduro (illestpreacha), Hybrid Live Coding Interfaces 2021: Beyond the Screen invites practitioners of live coding and those that are adjacent to submit proposals for lightning talks, mini-performances, speculations/ponderings and/or art works.

Live coding isn’t just about what is written on the screen but also the state of mind, the expression that is being executed by the performer in relation to or in accordance with the state of the intended audience.


Exploring the World with all its Might How does Livecoding add to this sight Does code look at world so bright? Or fractions of a world at night? Livecoding doesn’t have to be view through the lenses of a computer screen For the world lives beyond the area of where are desks reside This session will not only explore the world but the views that come along with said exploration

From the conference website:

"The live coding field has grown over the past 20 years from a community of artists and researchers interested in “changing rules while they are followed” -- that is, the creative practice of using a computer programming language as a live interface, mainly in the performing arts. This field has since grown into the international “TOPLAP” community, with dozens of local nodes and offshoots such as Algorave algorithmic dance music events, with events taking place in over a hundred cities with growing media interest.


Live coders have worked collectively to make their technology and culture accessible, with almost all systems shared as free/open source software, and attempts to instill inclusivity, diversity and safety across organisations and lineups. On this foundation, current research in the field is increasingly looking outward, beyond now well-established practices such as algorave, livecode network music and slow coding. This includes new interfaces based on old practices including the Stenophone made from a court transcription device, a live-codable loom based on ancient weaving technology, and experiments in punk genres such as riot grrrl remixed with live codeable machine listening tools."
