Creating amazing improvised visuals in real time for live performance.
Livecoding Visuals Workshop with Antonio Roberts

Saturday 12 September, 1pm-3pm, £17

Improviz is an environment built by Guy John aka Rumblesan, which can be
used for live coding visual performances. Its easy-to-learn language for
creating visuals can be extended through the use of custom GL shaders and
by using your own GIFs, 3D models and image textures.

This two-hour workshop, led by visual artist Antonio Roberts aka
hellocatfood, will introduce you to the world of live coding, and guide you
through the basics of using Improviz for live visuals.
This workshop will also include a short look at how artists and musicians
use code to make visuals and music in real time at Algoraves.
If you've ever been curious about using code to make live visuals and have
aspirations to perform at live coding events and Algoraves then this
workshop is perfect for you.
No coding experience is necessary.
