viu

is a meeting / tribute / festival / event / afterparty of Live Coding that will take place from 21 to 25 January 2019 at the Hangar facilities in the City of Barcelona. There will be workshops, presentations, demos, livecoding from scratch and Algoraves.
The objective is to take advantage of the space-time coincidence of the livecoders present at the fourth international conference on live coding (January 16 to 18, 2019 in Madrid, Spain) to exchange experiences with the community of Barcelona.

Monday 21

4 – 8pm
Workshop: Development of audio-visual computational languages for artists.
This workshop focuses on facilitating the conceptual and technical creation of
programming languages for audio-visual performance. By RGGTRN: Luis Navarro del Angel,
Jessica Rodriguez, Emilio Ocelotl Reyes, Marianne Teixido (MEX)

8:30 pm
Concerts:
– RGGTRN performance where the aesthetics of the “party sonidera” and the live coding “from
scratch” collide.

– Roosa Pony (UK): Roosa Pony is a collaboration between the vocalist Delia Fano Yela and the
sound artist Alo Allik. This improvised performance explores the connection between different
vocal styles and live coding in a context of dance music.

Tuesday 22

6:30 p.m.
Round table: Sequels of the ICLC 2019
Round table on live coding with guests of the International Conference on Live Coding. Moderated by Iván Paz and Lina Bautista.
This activity will be carried out in the Phonos Foundation, Campus of the Pompeu Fabra, University Communication C / Roc Boronat 138.

Wednesday 23

4-6pm
Hydra workshop.
Hydra is a platform for live coding visuals, in which each connected browser window can be
used as a node of a modular and distributed video synthesizer.
Olivia Jack gives (USA-Col).

– Jack Purvis (Visor) (New Zealand). live coding visuals with Visor.
Visor allows for live coding of Processing in the Ruby language and takes ideas from VJ software.

9pm
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.

Thursday 24

4pm to 7pm
Workshop Tidal-Cycles.
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
Presentations:

– PiranhaLab
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.

– Mexican Livecoders’ Libraries
Instrument: Rodrigo Frenk
nanc-in-a-can by Alejandro Franco and Diego Villaseñor

– 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.

Algorave

The Algoraves are events where music generated with algorithms is danced, including the
practice of live coding, as well as other approaches to control and perform generative music.
