A hands-on, beginners' workshop where you can get started with making music and visuals with text.. You'll be introduced to a variety of "live coding" environments, geared towards combining simple elements into complex results. Most of the workshop will be hands-on with the free/open source TidalCycles environment. No experience in programming or performance necessary! Just bring a laptop (or let us know in advance if you need to borrow one). The workshop will be lead by algoravers including Lucy Cheesman and Alex McLean.
