Sonic Pattern and the Textility of Code
Daytime symposium and evening performances
Sheffield, Wednesday 17th June 2015

This event is the second edition of an ongoing series, exploring
diverse viewpoints (weaving, knitting, live coding, mathematics,
generative visuals/music, and digital making) on how sound, image and
threads allow us to both sense the abstract and conceptualise the
tactile. This second symposium will focus on code as live material,
and material as coded form, exploring in new light thrown by artists
and makers increasingly using code in their practice alongside other
