#Algorave Assembly – 27 Apr 2018

#Algorave Assembly is a day that brings together invited speakers and performers operating at the forefront of the Algorave scene

27 April 2018, 1pm – 11pm
School of Music, University of Leeds / live-streamed on this page

An Algorave is a rave/dance/concert with live coding and music generated by mathematical processes/algorithms. This event looks at the Algorave from practical and scholarly perspectives and should be informative, fun and of an extremely high standard. 

Live coding masterclasses, panel discussion, Concert Hall performances and keynotes will explore and disseminate the latest developments in this emerging form of musical practice, organised by Dan Merrick at the School of Music, University of Leeds. 

The entire day’s activities will be streamed live here as part of the initial RNCM Ensemble+ network activity:
