Month: September 2014
I wrote a short essay “The Textility of Live Code”, published in a (free to download) ebook Torque #1, a collection of writings from the excellent series of events by the same name organised (and here edited) by Nathan Jones and Sam Skinner. It’s a thoroughly interdisciplinary take on mind, language and the brain and it’s been a privilege to be involved with the project. I collaborated with Kate Sicchio on a live choreography and live code performance as part of the event series, and she also has a piece in the book, amongst many other fascinating pieces.
I’ve had an inspiring time lately, including at FARM, SNEL HEST, and most recently a week’s residency with some really marvellous people at Digital Media Labs in Octopus, Barrow. So despite being tired I really enjoyed streaming a live coded improv to a metarave/megarave event Wallriss in Switzerland, making the above recording for posterity. I found myself settling into familiar territory at times though, I need to add more features to Tidal!
A lot more events coming up, too…
