  1. Yes start / stop still needs fixing since tidal 1.0 happened..
  2. ALGORITHMS ARE INFECTING DISCOS AND RUINING LIVES 19:30 - 01:00, 20 June 2019 Corsica Studios London Tickets: https://tickets.partyforthepeople.org/events/4762-algorave-elephant Algorave+friends return to Corsica Studios for a two room solstice party featuring: Lil Data (PC Music) // Heavy lifting (Pickled Discs) x Graham Dunning (Fractal Meat) // Miri Kat (Establishment) // Deerful // Hard On Yarn Sourdonk Communion (Hmurd x peb) // Class Compliant Audio Interfaces x Hellocatfood (Computer Club/Keysound) // Digital Selves // Mathr // xname // Evan Raskob // Deep Vain // Hortense // Tsun Winston Yeung // +777000 // Coral Manton // Rumblesan + more TBA "The scene at an algorave is often what you'd expect from any good techno night - a dark room, engaging visuals. a decent, bass-heavy speaker set-up, and lots of people ready to dance. .. performers at algoraves respond to each other and the audience in real time, often projecting the lines of code onto the walls as they type. lt’s coding as improvisation and experiment.." - The Wire magazine "Live coders write computer programs live, while the programs generate their music, but the focus is on people dancing and seriously enjoying themselves" - Dazed and Confused ".. not so much a revolution as a de-volution, a rolling back to the backend of music production, where the possibilities of the encoded information inside computer software is open and endless" - Mixmag
  3. Sending off AlgoMech Festival with a special party in aid of Hope Not Hate, a well-established charity with a long, positive history working against racism and the far right. We're excited to announce that Ryoko Akama, Mark Fell and Rian Treanor are teaming up for a one-time-only collaboration in support of this benefit. We're expecting to have our minds fully melted by this unique performance! Big thanks to them for not only putting something really special together but also donating their artist fee to the cause. Top notch support will come from Basic Switches, plus Fizzy (Plenty Fuss, GRL.) will play their favourite mechanical tunes. This event will be pay-as-you-feel, with every penny on the door donated to Hope not Hate, so please give as generously as you can. https://algomech.com/2019/events/closing-party/
  4. AlgoMech festival is back, 17-19th May 2019 in Sheffield UK, with a diverse programme blending algorithmic, mechanical and textile artforms. On the livecoding side we’ve got workshops on TidalCycles and Orca and a full-on algorave, with a huge line-up spread over two rooms. Here’s the festival trailer, hope to see you there !
  5. If you want to apply functions to e.g. only the bd events in a pattern, you can use fix https://tidalcycles.org/index.php/fix d1 $ fix (fast 2) (s "bd") $ n "0 3 2 1" # s "bd sn" ... should make the bds go faster A warning though, for some reason fix uses a lot of cpu, you can't get away with using many at once. You can use gain to control midi velocity, but the scaling of it is wrong.. Looks like there's a workaround here https://github.com/musikinformatik/SuperDirt/issues/120
  6. Nice one! Growing activity in France: https://www.algorave.fr/
  7. Hm, I'm on linux mint and the stock ghc haskell there works fine. I'd have thought 4G should be enough for stack, though..
  8. Heh, nice to stumble on this old thread, glad you're having fun with tidal!

"The scene at an algorave is often what you'd expect from any good techno night - a dark room, engaging visuals. a decent, bass-heavy speaker set-up, and lots of people ready to dance. .. performers at algoraves respond to each other and the audience in real time, often projecting the lines of code onto the walls as they type. lt’s coding as improvisation and experiment.." - The Wire magazine Heavy line-up emerging: Renick Bell (uiq/uk) - bringing his Fractal Beats sound from Tokyo..

With over 25 years experience of looking at things, her visuals are completely improvised using Fluxus, often using audio input to make visuals come alive. http://chez.io/ Heaving Lifting - What do you say to the man who wants to make rotten egg [sic]?
