Bruce Lane will be livecoding on february 14 13:00CET
We’ve been running an annual Algorave stream, but as it’s the 15th anniversary year of TOPLAP, lets do a birthday stream for that instead this time..
Live coding is about making live music, visuals and other time-based arts by writing and manipulating code. Recently it’s been popularised as Algorave, but is a technique used in all kinds of genres and artforms.
The open worldwide live coding community goes by the name of TOPLAP (Temporary Organisation for the Promotion of Live Algorithm Programming) was formed 15 years again (14th February, 2004) at an event called Changing Grammars in Hamburg.
Now this worldwide community is coming together to make a continuous 3.5 day live stream with over 168 half-hour performance slots..
Join the livestream chat here:
There’s over 168 performances from 14th-17th February, quite a few beamed from local celebratory events being organised around the place (Prague, London, NYC, Amsterdam, Madison, Bath, Argentina, Richmond, Hamilton, …), and others by individuals who’ll be live coding from their sofa.
Anyone going to stay up to watch the whole thing?
