@iii workspace, Willem Dreespark 312, The Hague, The Hague

This evening of performances will focus on embodiment through practices of live coding. The stage becomes a temporary site for experimenting with real time collaborative composition making: between body and language; words and flesh; the oral and the written — presenting an ecology of scores and scripts for movement to unfold and new relations to emerge.

Curated by Joana Chicau, Artist lineup to be announced soon!

@iii workspace, Willem Dreespark 312, The Hague, The Hague

This concert will explore the idea, "the future of music", by looking for the pioneers and artists who are pushing the boundaries of our musical understanding of live coding.

Curated by Felipe Ignacio Noriega, with invited artists: Shelly Knotts (UK), Kofi Oduro (Canada), Rafaele Andrade (nl_cl), Raphael Sousa Santos (nl_cl) and Robert van Heumen (nl_cl).

In light of recent global circumstances making in-person performances increasingly difficult for performing artists, we will present the first NL_CL / iii collaboration as a live streamed (un)concert.

An evening of live coding performances by the duo Anne Veinberg and Felipe Ignacio Noriega, with the telematic presence of Alexandra Cardenas and an algorithmic improv by Netherlands Coding Live community. This event is dedicated to the act of coding as a live artistic intervention; from digital to physical expressions, a myriad of experiments relating code with sound, code to the body, the body to movement and counter-movements. This programme is part of a series co-organized by Joana Chicau, who will facilitate conversations with the performers about their practice and experiences. The talks will focus on the issue of how multilocation collaborative creative coding and algorithmic improvisation may open the path towards more inclusive and gender balanced communities. >> more info here <<


15.04.2018: "Fail to Parse" — 17h-21h @STEIM studio 3, Schipluidenlaan 12, Amsterdam

The parse failure is a reply from the machine to let us know that it doesn't understand us. It gives us access to the machine's mind and usually gives hints on how to re-phrase our commands so that the machine can better understand what we are aiming for. Robert Henke stated that "failures are great, pointing to the future". Through failure we can learn, we get new ideas. You need to experiment and be ready to fail to develop new things and learn new skills.

During this livecoding gathering we want to help each other to overcome our fear of code, of the unknown, try things we never did before — fail together and parse our failures collectively. We will be coding within the realm of music and visuals. No prior experience is a must, the only requirement is the motivation and readiness to code, even if it is your first time!

We want to explore other modes than the solo livecoder and mix methods from agile development with improvisation games. We want to share and explore together: hands-on instead of show & tell.
