Live Coding. Live Synths. Live Music.
We bring a live open-sourced attitude to electronic music. For us, music is code and coding is performance. The source code is our instrument and we play it live.
==> Live Coding - A New Approach
Armed with programming languages, monomes and number of simple MIDI Kontrollers, we harness the full power of the SuperCollider synthesis engine through the incredible Overtone platform. We don't just use our laptops to tweak GUI sliders and pots, we write raw Clojure code into Emacs live in our performances. We also generate real-time visualisations perfectly synchronised to the sound with Quil and Shadertone. All the code for our sets is open source and available for you to play with: Meta-eX Ignite.
Live Coding allows us to generate music on-the-fly enabling us to change the direction of the sound and respond to our environment at a whim. Our sounds aren't pre-recorded and tweaked on-stage, they're coded and generated live in real time. We produce a real raw noise rather than manufactured industry-polished pseudo-perfection. Our sound isn't hardcore, breakcore or speedcore - it's multi-core and fully hyper-threaded.
==> Live Performances
In addition to jamming live at least once a week in Cambridge, we also perform live for audiences. Let us know if you'd like us to play live at your event: firstname.lastname@example.org

==> Tech Talks
Despite developing and using some of the most advanced live coding software in the world, we don't keep our tech secret and hidden - we actively promote its use for other budding live coders and music programmers. We give tech talks to audiences of any background - from musicians to programmers to interested algoravers. Contact us if you'd like us to deliver a tech talk at your event: email@example.com
