– Dazed & confused
“Alexandra Cárdenas has no decks. Instead, she’s working on a laptop. A projection behind shows about 20 lines of code, which she is toying with, stripping some away, modifying the parameters of others. The minimal techno starts piling up, reversing on itself. Complex rhythms emerge, fall away, then come back stronger, energising the crowd. Cárdenas is completely lost in the music. This is an “algorave”, where humans dance to algorithms.”
