The first official, (potentially) annual TidalCycles live coding
summer school!Learn to quickly+easily make algorithmic patterns with
TidalCycles (http://tidalcycles.org/). Explore ways to transform
patterns through repetition, symmetry, interference and glitch. Find
out how to add your own sounds to TidalCycles, or use it to control
MIDI synthesisers. Try out multichannel sound – sending TidalCycles
patterns across multiple speakers in surround sound. Try linking up
multiple laptops for ensemble play. Hang out with other nice people in
the fine city of Sheffield, crucible of electronic music, with the
rugged Peak District national park a stone’s throw away.

The workshop will be lead by me (Alex McLean, http://slab.org/). I
created TidalCycles (now a free/open source community project), and
deeply involved with live coding, co-founding algorave and toplap and
performing at sonar, transmediale, strp, sonic acts, blue dot, ars
electronica, and resonate festivals, the ica, arnolfini, tate modern
and around 50 algoraves.

The fee for this two day workshop is suggested minimum £25 for
unwaged/underemployed, and maximum of £250 for those with strong
institutional backing or surplus cash. Proceeds will go towards space
hire and Alex’s time developing and documenting TidalCycles, an
otherwise unfunded and volunteer-run project.
