The Algorave community is international and fast-growing, and this event bring together emerging artists from Mexico, Sydney and Newport Pagnell. Mico Rex fuse together punk acid with exuberant vocals fresh from the fandangos of Mexico City. Yee-King develops his drill n’ bass sound from his Rephlex classic “SuperUser”, combining live coding with live drumpad drilling.

SONY DSCThis list of innovators goes on; Andrew Sorensen massages his live algorithms into algorithmic trance, slub producing their trademark dirty, pure functional gabber techno, Sick Lincoln performing dynamical datapop with algoravethms to make your mind and body spin, Norah Lorway developing her lush ambience into pounding procedural glitch, Luuma manipulating multiple devices and interfaces to make industrial dystopian darkfloor, Hernani Villaseñor coding up some low-fi 8 bit techno, and Section 9 live coding house which is both progressive and recursive.

All of these performers will make their algorithmic instruments and languages as visible as possible, but the point isn’t to understand the algorithm, but to understand the music; to reclaim technology for the people and to enjoy it together.
