Creative Data Club returns for 2016 on 28 January!
We've teamed up with Somerset House to present a special edition Creative Data Club at the Big Bang Data exhibition focusing on the theme of music and data. As well as our normal format of three AMAZING speakers, we'll also be hosting the ultimate in data meets music, an algorave within the exhibition space itself.
- Kate Hayes and Mathieu Barthet presenting their Open Symphony project which invites audience to influence the musical direction of the performers through a web based app manifested in live data visualisations.
- In this talk, Thor Magnusson will discuss how visual design has been an important factor in his music software development. He will trace the influences in this design approach through presenting three different live performance systems.
- Alex McLean will go through some thoughts about pattern in computer programming, music and textiles, including showing his free/open source Tidal live coding environment, created for making broken techno music from code. He'll try to make this interesting for non-programmers and programmers (and techno and non-techno heads) alike. http://yaxu.org/ http://slab.org/ http://tidal.lurk.org/
Two performances showing very different approaches to the practice of "live coding", writing code to improvise live music. Firstly Thor Magnusson (http://www.ixi-audio.net/thor/) will perform the Threnoscope (https://vimeo.com/100148087), a musical piece that is itself live coding language for drones, and secondly Alexandra Cardenas (http://cargocollective.com/tiemposdelruido/Alexandra-Cardenas) and Alex McLean (http://yaxu.org/) will improvise broken techno with the Tidal (http://tidal.lurk.org) language, Algorave (http://algorave.com) style.
NB: Attendance to Creative Data Club is free, but an exhibition ticket must be purchased to view the Algorave. All Creative Data Club attendees will receive a wristband allowing them discounted entry into the exhibition on the night.
Sign up to the mailing list here for to be the first to know all future announcements.
Creative Data Club brings together all types (and ability levels) of data fans and creators to share, discuss and explore interesting ideas about how data can be used in creative ways or produce creative work.
The premise is simple, a selection of speakers from a range of backgrounds share how they use data, you get to start some conversations with other data fans
