TidalCycles (or Tidal for short) is a programming language for live coding pattern. It allows you to make musical patterns with text, describing sequences and ways of transforming and combining them, exploring complex interactions between simple parts. The first London Tidal meetup features short talks from Jack Armitage, PhD Student in Media & Arts Technologies and musician better known as Lil Data, and Guy John, creator of LiveCodeLab, who will be giving us a brief introduction to Haskell, the underlying…

Learn the basics of setting up a live coding session and making soundscapes and beats with sound synthesis and patterns in SuperCollider. SuperCollider is an incredibly powerful, open-source, cross-platform, audio engine and programming language, used not only to create music, but also for machine listening, audio/music reactive installations, performance, interactive systems, research, live-coding and much more. Requirements: You will need your own computer (OSX / Windows/ Linux), and a pair of headphones. Shelly Knotts produces live-coded and network music performances…

Learn about making music with code using TidalCycles. Tidal has been developed by Alex over many years, initially for making broken dance music at events now known as “Algoraves,” as well as free Jazz improv, although it is now a free/open source software project with a growing community of users applying it to diverse musics. This is an introductory workshop appropriate for anyone, including those with no programming and/or music-making experience. It’ll introduce Tidal’s notation of polyrhythmic rhythm, its library of…

Software Workshop – Make music with code, with Alo Allik

July 5 @ 18:30 - 21:00
Somerset House Studios, New Wing, Room G16, Entrance via Lancaster Place, Somerset House

In this workshop we will explore many different ways to create sounds from scratch, manipulate recorded sounds and compose these into music. Since computers are used virtually in almost any piece of recorded music in some way, it becomes useful to have an insight into how music technology works behind the user interface or perhaps how it can be even more liberating and powerful without it. The SuperCollider programming environment provides an opportunity to explore sounds synthesis and algorithmic composition…

This hands-on workshop introduces participants to using SuperCollider on Bela, an open source embedded platform for ultra-low latency audio and sensor processing based on the BeagleBone Black. Bela is designed to generate and process audio while connected to the physical world using all sorts of analog and digital sensors. During the workshop we will show how you can adapt your existing SuperCollider-based instrument to the Bela platform. Also we will show how you can go from developing and testing by…

In this workshop we’ll be exploring SuperCollider and its use with MIDI for interfacing both hardware and software synths. SuperCollider is a powerful, open-source, cross-platform, audio engine and programming language, used not only to create music, but also for machine learning, audio/music reactive installations, performance, interactive systems, research, live-coding and much more. Requirements: You will need your own computer (OSX / Windows/ Linux), a pair of headphones, MIDI interface, MIDI cable and if possible a synth that accepts MIDI signals.…
