Lineup

Algo-timo.jpg

Timo Hoogland is a Dutch computational artist, live coder, musician and lecturer who codes experimental electronic dance music and develops generative audiovisual compositions, installations and performances. As part of his Master's degree in Music Design at Utrecht University, he developed the Mercury environment to help research and development of algorithmic compositional techniques and generative visualizations for live coding performances. He is an active member of the live coding community in Utrecht, where he organizes workshops, meetups and Algoraves with Creative Coding Utrecht and Netherlands Coding Live.

Algo-roger.jpg

Roger Pibernat is a self-taught illustrator, musician and programmer, who constantly explores new artistic expressions and fields of knowledge. He started using SuperCollider in 2011 and has since performed with the Barcelona Laptop Orchestra in venues ranging from small bars to Sonár festival. Roger is co-founder of the art collective Wú, where he makes electroacoustic instruments, develops digital and interactive installations and creates audiovisual performances. He is an active member of the growing live coding community in Barcelona.

Algo-ivan.jpg

Iván Paz combines his knowledge of physics, music and computer science in his creative process. His work is based on critical approaches to technology and "from scratch" composition principles. Since 2010, he has been an active member of the international live coding community and has presented his work in workshops, conferences and performances around Europe and America.

Algo-lina.jpg

Linalab is a multiple singularity. It's a whole and a unity, a solitary sound, and a note. A frequency that remains in time to become more complex, to become entangled, to become noise; melody, song and then silence. Linalab does not only exist on stage. Besides playing at numerous events and festivals, she also understands music as an ongoing process of investigation. She is a producer for the Synth Vicious record label; plays an active role with TOPLAP Barcelona and creates electronic sound devices with Familiar DIY.

Algo-luka.jpg

Luka Prinčič is a musician, performer and intermedia artist who has presented his works in the field of computer and electronic music, sound art, intermedia installations and performance at numerous venues at home and abroad (Ars Electronica, EMAF, Netmage, Kapelica Gallery, MG+MSUM ...). Among other things, he is responsible for Kamizdat, an online label for experimental electronic music. He is one of the most active live coders in Slovenia – his latest bandcamp releases were exclusively or partially created in the live coding environment SuperCollider.

Algo-turbu.jpg

Citlali Hernández Sánchez, aka Turbulente, takes a transdisciplinary approach to her artistic work. She is interested in experimenting with the materiality of performance, and her entanglement with cables, pixels, and circuits to think of the body as a field of potentialities. She holds a degree in Industrial Design, followed by a Master's degree in Digital Arts at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. Citlali uses the Hydra platform developed by Olivia Jack for her experiments with live images and code.

Algo-chiguire.jpg

Hailing from the valley of Caracas, Venezuela, Chigüire is a multimedia artist interested in the dialogue between humans and machines. Their music mixes industrial textures and handcrafted synthesis with latin rhythms, mixing different genres, from cumbia to trance, to create rave-ready beats inspired by 90s music.

Algo-patrick.jpg

Patrick Borgeat is a live coder, code-based artist and programmer. Patrick studied music informatics at the University of Music Karlsruhe, where he now teaches classes in creative coding. For many years, he has been actively involved in the Karlsruhe live coding scene as a live visuals performer and event organizer. Since 2010, he has held performances, exhibits, talks, and workshops, all over Europe, including London, Madrid, Venice, Linz, Prague, Vienna, Liepāja, Tallinn, and St. Petersburg. Patrick received an Honorary Mention at the Prix Ars Electronica in the Digital Music & Sound Art category with the live-coding ensemble Benoît and the Mandelbrots (2012), and an Honorable Mention at the Visual Music Live Competition with the audiovisual band Ganzfeld (2015).

Algo-olivia.jpg

Olivia Jack is a programmer, artist, and educator who works frequently with open-source software, cartography, live coding, and experimental interfaces. She is the developer of browser-based creative tools including Hydra (live-codable video synthesizer), PIXELSYNTH, and LiveLab (peer-to-peer media router). She enjoys creating audiovisual instruments, and often collaborates with musicians and dancers to create live performances. She has shared her work internationally, giving talks, workshops, and performances at venues such as Planetario de Bogotá (Colombia), Centro Nacional de las Artes (Mexico City), Hangar (Barcelona), CTM Festival (Berlin), and Oscillation Festival (Belgium), among others. Originally from San Francisco, California, she is currently based in Berlin, Germany.

Algo-saskia.jpg

Saskia Freeke is an artist and designer based in The Netherlands. She is a pioneer of daily creative coding (aka “dailies”), and she has posted new explorations online every day since January 2015. She currently posts her dailies on Tumblr, Ello, Twitter, and Instagram, and she has shared her work with audiences in Berlin, London, Paris, Los Angeles, and many locations in The Netherlands. Saskia is also an educator who has taught physical computing at Goldsmiths, University of London and visual design at the University of the Arts Utrecht School for Games and Interaction. She earned a Master of Arts in Computational Arts degree from Goldsmiths, University of London in 2017.

Algo-blaz.jpg

Blaž Pavlica is an audio-visual artist, audio engineer, DJ and programmer. With Jaša Bužinel, he hosts the club and electronic music show Partijska linija on Radio Študent and organises the Cosmic Sex club events series. He performed with the audio-visual collective Ensemble PRSA, initially with generative melodies and sound, later switching to video feedback loop techniques, and finally to generative geometry and 3D rendering. He designed hacking and coding workshops for children and youth in collaboration with Ljudmila, and is currently working on the updates for his ambisonic dome. In recent years, he has performed his AV sets at several live coding events using Hydra and SuperCollider.

on-the-fly

on-the-fly is a project to promote Live Coding practice, a performative technique focused on writing algorithms in real-time so that the one who writes is part of the algorithm. Live coding is mainly used to produce music or images but it extends beyond that. Our objectives are: supporting knowledge exchange between communities, engaging with critical reflections, promoting free and open-source tools and bringing live coding to new audiences. The project, running from 10/2020 to 09/2022 and co-funded by the Creative Europe programme, is led by Hangar Barcelona in collaboration with ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, Creative Coding Utrecht and Ljubljana’s Ljudmila.

Partners: Hangar Barcelona (ES), ZKM Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe (DE), Creative Coding Utrecht (NL), Ljudmila Art and Science Laboratory (SI).

Associated Partner of ZKM | Karlsruhe: Institute for Music Informatics and Musicology at Karlsruhe University of Music.
