Algorave = algorithmic dance music, generally live coded in front of you with projections of code + visuals.

Yorkshire is a strong centre for the international algorave movement so we’re bringing together some of our best algorithmic producers, and the DANGERNOISE soundsystem for a proper party. All proceeds in aid of the Access Space charity.
