Chords & Cracks

Translating paintings in a story with music and live interactive images. Below an example of what this collaboration with Sioen, Koen van den Broek and PJ Seaux resulted in. A challenging opportunity to create something unique on the verge of classical instruments & electronic music and classical painting & synthesising images.

In 2014 H.AL.I.C organised and played at the first belgian algorave

besides some belgian talent, we had a livestream from Alex McLean with a remote performance

Trix Algorave

After a month of trying to run clojure REPLs and trying to get quil to talk to overtone I was ready for my first livecoding performance. Trix algorave was a great event to meet like minded people talking about code, music and creativity.
Using quil means I was doing graphics and I was supporting the music of bohrbug. The hardest part was getting two computers to be in sync on both sound and music. I could use some insights on that.
For now we were using OSC and two separate SC servers. I have a hunch that running one SC-server for both music and visuals could greatly improve the sync and the amount of data that can be shared realtime between the two interfaces. Any ideas on that are likely to be moderated very quickly 🙂

The evening was continued with Insomniark en Exoterrism both using pure supercollider and hardware controllers for quickly interfacing with the code to be concluded with a streamed set from Alex McLean. That last set showed of an impressive coding style, both fast and well executed clearly showing experience is important…
