Introductions - please say hello!

Ok, lets introduce ourselves!

I’m Alex, and have been organising live coding events for a while now… Algoraves, headphone parties, conferences, festivals… But most enjoy making small, experimental events where it’s not clear what is going to happen… I’m based in Sheffield UK although work part time in Munich, Germany.


Hey, I’m Joanne. I like the notes that are coming up to my right here.

I’m Joanne, I’m based in Leeds UK. I organise things like conferences and events at work, workshops with a focus on diverse participation and concerts, listening groups and skill sharing events. I like finding unusual and playful spaces to do stuff in. I’m currently organising two way-bigger-than-my-brain things including the SXSW Algorave showcase and a feminist hackathon in Leeds called Automation and Me.


I’m Kate and I am currently based in Richmond VA. I previously lived in Sheffield UK, NYC and some other places along the way.

In NYC I was a co-founder of LiveCodeNYC and organised many Algoraves, workshops and festivals there.

Trying to start up LiveCodeRVA but it is slow going right now and mostly organising events connected to my new job at VCU.

Hi, I’m Gabriel from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I organise concerts, workshops and any kind of live coding related events, also love to discuss and write about it. I have an extended-bytebeat-like project and some other crazy ideas that keep me working and I’m happy to share with you.

Hello I’m Blue (They/them).
I’ve been organising TidalCycles meet-up in London with a focus on non-mixed groups introducing women, non-binary and gender non conforming people to livecoding. I rely on notions of care in everything that I do.

Hi all! I’m Rapo, from La Plata, Argentina.

We started a live coders collective CLiC[0] (Colectivo de Live Coders), and organized events, 1 algorave, encounters, etc. Now we want to continue with that o/

We do livecoding as a duo with Flor de Fuego called c0d3 p03try[1].




Hi all, I am Valentina. I’m a sound designer based in Milan, Italy.
I am really interested in live coding and sometimes I organise workshops to introduce those who are interested to the practice and philosophy. I am co-founding the TOPLAP Italia node (it’s still a work in progress, it all started a couple of days ago…) and we hope to organise meetings, workshops, algoraves or other live coding related events.

Hey everyone! I’m Abhinay, a filmmaker, musician, creative technologist from India. I’ve been involved with the experimental music, and indie filmmaking scene in Mumbai for a long while. I’ve previously lived in Birmingham, UK and now operate out of my hometown in Allahabad.

Hi all, I’m Julian Rohrhuber, I live in Cologne and work in Düsseldorf. We organise small seminars or workshops, mostly in the music academy. We think together, hack some experimental stuff, discuss philosophy and political issues.

If you are interested and in the area, drop me a note and come by.


Hola gente! I’m Pedro (a.k.a. Torotumbo) i’m a musician from La Plata Argentina, i teach music in schools and i started to live code several months ago. Meet @rapo some other folks and made CLiC some time ago, we organized an algorave for the birthday streaming.

Hi, I’m Ben, in St Paul, Minnesota, USA. I try to help out with the local Tidal meetup and do demonstrations when I can, but would like to be better about organizing actual workshops or performances.

Hi! my name is Joana Chicau (Portuguese, based in The Netherlands) I am a graphic designer with a background in dance. In my practice I have been researching the intersection of the body with the ‘designed’ and ‘programmed’ environment. Within live coding I do performances in web environments following ‘choreographic scripts’.
I have also been participating and organizing events with audio-visual algorithmic improvisation, multi-location collaborative coding, open discussions on gender equality and activism.
