First algorave workshop with Renick Bell and Miri Kat in Poland!

Algorave is short for "algorithmic rave”, an event where live coders work in front of an audience to create danceable music generated from algorithms. Two central figures from the scene are Renick Bell and Miri Kat, who team up with Krakow’s Geek Girls Carrots to give a workshop on how to code music live. Workshop participants will learn the TidalCycles library for the Haskell programming language. Knowledge of Haskell is not required to join the workshop. Participants will also have the possibility to enjoy five minutes of coding fame at the Unsound club night in Hotel Forum later that night.

Miri Kat is a British producer and visual artist who is coding her art live. She’s interested in new music and web technologies, hacking, creative coding, algorithmic music and generative visuals. By day, she’s an engineer of electronic musical instruments, by night she’s one of the forces behind the Algorave movement. At Unsound 2018 she will not only perform but will also run a workshop on livecoding music, together with Renick Bell.

Renick Bell is an American programmer and computer musician based in Tokyo. Researching live coding, he’s become one of the most recognizable faces of the Algorave movement, although his music has been released through many different outlets - from UIQ through Halcyon Veil to Seagrave. At Unsound 2018, Renick will not only perform his music live but will also lead workshops on live coding together with Miri Kat.
