This workshop is designed to merge the realms of music theory and live coding. In the first half, we'll explore the unique opportunities that algorithmic patterns present to musicians, translating complex concepts like repetition, interference patterns, and expectation into the practical language of live coding. The second half will focus on applying these concepts to create structured compositions. This session is perfect for those interested in the intersection of coding and music composition, offering both theoretical insights and practical applications.


This workshop will be divided into four 30-minute sections. 1st / 30-minute demonstration of a simpler live coding idea 2nd / 30-minute demonstration of a more advanced coding idea 3rd / A live 30-minute performance from the artist 4th / A 30-minute Q&A where you can ask the artist any question on your mind The artist arrives 30 minutes before the class begins to help with any technical questions about setting up. Although Strudel runs in the browser and requires no formal installation it is recommended that you test the software before the class. To allow the workshop to flow classes will not be stopped for technical issues, so please use this time if you have any technical questions.
