Welcome to the Live Coding Research Network. We are just starting up, but please see below for the network events planned so far, as well as other related live coding events. More to follow, including a symposium on live coding education, and an international conference in 2015.
An introductory workshop with LCRN coordinators Thor Magnusson and Alex McLean. (Sorry, fully booked)
FIBER and STEIM are joining forces for a weekend of Algorave and Live Coding activity in Amsterdam. Live coding workshops will take place on Friday 21st March (the same day as the LCRN kick-off in London), followed by late performances on the Saturday, and talks on the Sunday.
An introductory, cross-disciplinary kick-off day, with the aim to provide rich context for live coding research and feed into the next two years of network activity. In the morning we will have talks by Emma Cocker (Senior Lecturer in Fine Art, Nottingham Trent University), Nick Collins (Reader in Composition, University of Durham) and Alexandra Cardenas (University of the Arts, Berlin). We will then enjoy a remote performance by Andrew Sorensen, and then a series of 10 minute presentations followed by group discussion. More details soon. Booking is essential, sign up here.
We are happy to support the following expansive event:
An event that brings together diverse viewpoints on weaving, knitting, live coding, dyadic mathematics, generative music and digital making, in order to see how patterned sound and threads allow us to both sense the abstract and conceptualise the tactile. We will look for a rich view of technology as a meeting point of craft, culture and live experience.
The invited speakers will explore aspects of making, process, language, material and output in the relation to their own practice and related contexts.
The discussion will be lead by Bronac Ferran, Janis Jefferies, and David Toop, and practitioners include Alessandro Altavilla, Sarah Angliss, Felicity Ford, Berit Greinke, Ellen Harlizius-Klück, Alex McLean and Rebecca Stewart.
There will be audio-visual interludes through the day, including a screening of Ismini Samanidou and Robin Rimbaud’s film Weave Waves, commissioned for the Sound Matters exhibition in 2013 by Crafts Council, and a short performance by Felicity Ford.
Curated by Karen Gaskill, Crafts Council
Details and timing to be confirmed. The first day might be a doctoral event. This symposium will be in collaboration and crossover with the Network Music Festival, which will run over the following weekend 26-28th September 2014, and which will also include live coding activities.
