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.

Sonic Pattern and the Textility of Code @ LIMEWHARF
May 13 @ 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

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 

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.

The event will close with a live music performance from Leafcutter 
Leafcutter John, Matthew Yee-King and Alex McLean, exploring code, pattern and sound.
