Title: Live music with Haskell
Speaker: Alex McLean
Abstract: Alex has been making music with Haskell for many years, mainly with his free/open source environment TidalCycles (or Tidal for short; http://tidalcycles.org). He makes music by live coding with Tidal, most often at 'algoraves', where people dance to algorithmic music. Tidal applies pure functional reactive programming principles to represent musical pattern, providing a library of combinators for creating sequencing and transforming them in strange ways. Alex will introduce and demonstrate Tidal, and also his research work in weaving, where he uses Haskell to explore textile patterns rather than musical ones.
