Curious about live coding yourself? There are Tidal clubs in Sheffield, London and Atlanta. Relaxed, friendly, diverse environments for
veterans and novices alike to play and learn with the TidalCycles language.
I was gripped by the usual terror of everyone else's brilliance when I performed at the No Bounds algorave, but I think it went
pretty well - a personal best in fact, I'd go that far.
The brain freeze moment that used to accompany the start of my performances (a desparate few seconds of being unable to
recall a single word of Tidal code) seems to have passed and the whole experience of live coding in front of a crowd is starting to feel
more natural, enjoyable even.
It's a great algorave line-up
wrapped in a huge weekend long schedule of stunning electro artists, plus spoken word, plus workshops (inlcuding one run by the TidalCycles
creator introducing you
to his free music making software.)
Euleroom #7 was a huge pleasure, especially as the line-up mostly comprised members of Sheffield's Tidal Club, most of
whom hadn't previously performed with TidalCycles.
There was an exciting mix of styles - great crowd pleasers, and great experimentation.
The full set is available via YouTube. Audio and video seem to get divorced along the way, which will keep you guessing.
Also, we raised £4million for Access Space through beer sales, so that's a bonus.
Euler Room #7
Euler Room is an occasional series of algorhythm derived dance music events.
There's one happening Saturday 22 April to raise funds for Access Space digital arts lab in Sheffield.
We're coding from Access Space and online to the world.
