Live coding is a performative practice where artists and musicians use code to create live music and live visuals. This is often done at electronic dance music events called Algoraves, but live coding is a technique rather than a genre, and has also been applied to noise music, choreography, live cinema, and many other time-based artforms. The project has been running at Vivid Projects and online. It was developed and delivered by mentors Antonio Roberts and Alex McLean, two leading artists within the UK and international live coding scene. You can read more about the project artists here .
