Our Livecoding meetups are a series of informal, participatory meetups focusing making music with code. While these meetups are open to any language that can be used for livecoding, the host primarily holds expertise with TidalCycles. TidalCycles is an open source, accessible livecoding platform. These events are very loosely structured, with occasional short talks and performances.
No programming experience is necessary for these meetups. They are free to attend, open to all abilities and are an excellent opportunity to learn how to start making music with code. We encourage you to bring a laptop and headphones to make the most of the meetup. There’s no need to have come to the previous meetups to come to this one.
Livecoding, in this context, refers to using code as a means to make music or produce generative visuals.
TidalCycles can be downloaded for free here. If you have any problems with installation we’d be happy to help out in the meetup. If you’re keen to develop your Tidal knowledge beforehand, there are plenty of great resources available. See our document of resources for independent learning here.
The meetup is organised by Music Hackspace.
