Trailblazing generative music phenomenon Algorave concludes the first
round of The Transceiver Series onboard visiting culture ship MS
Stubnitz. Dance away your preconceptions about electronic music, as
they compose the soundtrack to a good night out using real-time
Algoraves are parties where computer algorithms are involved in music
production. Algorithms have long been used in music, famously by
Mozart, Karlheinz Stockhausen, John Cage and more recently by
Autechre. Algorave parties follow this line but put the attention back
on the audience, where alien sounds of rave music are augmented with
the alien structures of algorithmic composition, and the audience
finds new ways to enjoy and dance to the music.

The Algorave community is international and fast-growing, and this
event bring together emerging artists from Mexico, Sydney and Newport
Pagnell. Mico Rex fuse together punk acid with exuberant vocals fresh
from the fandangos of Mexico City. Yee-King develops his drill n’ bass
sound from his Rephlex classic “SuperUser”, combining live coding with
live drumpad drilling. This list of innovators goes on; Andrew
Sorensen massages his live algorithms into algorithmic trance, slub
producing their trademark dirty, pure functional gabber techno, Sick
Lincoln performing dynamical datapop with algoravethms to make your
mind and body spin, Norah Lorway developing her lush ambience into
pounding procedural glitch, Luuma manipulating multiple devices and
interfaces to make industrial dystopian darkfloor, Hernani introducing
acousmatic music into aleotoric percussion, and Section 9 live coding
house which is both progressive
and recursive.

All of these performers will make their algorithmic instruments and
languages as visible as possible, but the point isn’t to understand
the algorithm, but to understand the music; to reclaim technology for
the people and to enjoy it together.

including MS Hackship and a Sarah Angliss / Thomas Truax double bill.
