Live coding is a new direction in electronic music and video, and is
starting to get somewhere interesting. Live coders expose and rewire
the innards of software while it generates improvised music and/or
visuals. All code manipulation is projected for your pleasure.
slub - Slub celebrate a decade since they first got a whole room of
people to dance to their code (at Amsterdam Paradiso), with a
hard-edged set of abstract acid with extra breakdowns.

Wrongheaded - Conducting an algorithmic seance, where a ouiji board
control interface issues instructions from beyond the grave. Dimly lit
but for the flickering of gas-driven projector screens, the
protagonists will be appropriately moustachioed as they bring you
ethereal sounds from the underworld.
Thor Magnusson - Shaking, self-modified beats with ixilang, from the
co-founder of ixi audio.

Michele Pasin - Audio/Visual temporal recursion with Impromptu.

Live coding is inclusive and accessible to all. Many live coding
environments can be downloaded and used for free, with documentation
and examples to get you started and friendly on-line communities to
help when you get problems. Popular live coding software includes
supercollider, ChucK, impromptu and fluxus. Live patching is live
coding with graph-based languages such as the venerable pure-data.
It's also possible to livecode with a gamepad, e.g. with the robot
