Please accept a very warm welcome to this growing community.

Sound Junction Satellite November 2020: Sound Junction Satellite and Algomech for sign-up and ticket information.

in the first of what we hope will be many collaborations, we’re excited to announce that Sound Junction Satellites are collaborating with Algomech; a festival of algorithmic and mechanical movement, and a Sheffield home for the burgeoning live-coding electronic music scene. If you’re staring boggle-eyed at the page asking ‘what is live-coding?’ – you can find out more here.

3.30pm – 5pm

Online workshop: Algorithmic Patterns – musical patterns as code

Over 90 minutes Alex McLean (Algorave, Algomech, Yaxu) will give a brief intro/demo to the idea of ‘algorithmic pattern’ using his “tidalcycles” live coding environment, and will then play a series of pre-prepared patterns that he’s created using it. We will talk about how each one is structured and how they ‘feel’ to us. No musical or technological knowledge will be assumed! Please plug in headphones or stereo speakers if possible. Please email once you have bought your ticket to let us know if you would like to take part in this workshop.
