"Sound Choreographer <> Body Code"
by Kate and Alex

The dance performance ist a collaboration between Live Choreography and Live Coding, creating a feedback loop where the diagrammatic choreography react and reconfigure live to music, and where the dancer represents instructions in the code, which the live coder tries to edit in order to create the music. The result is a resonance through movement, perception and language, influencing one another in a live composition, forming a whole system.

Alex McLean is active across the digital arts, hs is one third of the live coding band slub, co-founder of the TOPLAP (http://toplap.org/) live coding movement, generative dance music promoter Algorave, and a research fellow in human/technology interface at ICSRiM in the School of Music, University of Leeds.
