4pm to 7pm
TidalCycles (or Tidal) is a language for making patterns with live coding. It uses text to describe
the sequences, transform them and combine them through complex interactions or processes
(such as reflection or rotation) of simple parts. Alexandra Cárdenas teaches (Col, Mex)
7pm – 9pm
OpenFrameworks based viewer of the position data and light curves of observed sources.
These data were collected by the Gamma Ray Observatory HAWC (High-Altitude Water
Cherenkov Gamma-Ray Observatory). The project arises on the subject of the Astronomical
Hackathon and is part of a collaborative project that is complemented by 2HAWC and sc_hawc
and part of the Live Coding performance practice.

– LOVELACE, Laura Llaneli.
Lovelace is the surname of Ada Lovelace, the first woman programmer in s XIX. LOVELACE is also the last name of Linda Lovelace, the deep throat porn actress. Then, LOVE-LACE could be understood as “cord of love”, and relate it to the thread in weaving, an analog system of patterns and algorithms. LOVELACE is a performance in which a sung and spoken text is interwoven over code.
Live coding from scratch session
The from scratch technique consists of playing live for 9 minutes starting from an empty screen.
In this way, it allows to visualize the high or low level of the languages (try to play from scratch
using, for example, Tidal, SuperCollider or Csound), making transparent the tools (classes,
functions, data structures, etc.) that allow the livecoder to carry out the different musical tasks
within the performance. These sessions seek to take advantage of the empty screen restriction
and the 9 minutes to explore new possibilities.
