An extra special Algorave teaming up with Sheffield's brand new ALGOMECH festival, Millennium Gallery Live Lates + DANGERNOISE audio, to bring together top algorithmic and mechanical dance music producers and visualists from around the world.
"The scene at an algorave is often what you'd expect from any good techno night - a dark room, engaging visuals. a decent, bass-heavy speaker set-up, and lots of people ready to dance. .. performers at algoraves respond to each other and the audience in real time, often projecting the lines of code onto the walls as they type. lt’s coding as improvisation and experiment.." - The Wire magazine
Heavy line-up emerging:
AlgoBabez (uk) - Joanne + Shelly from England's North, whose live coded synths+patterns are rocking algoraves around the world -- great apart, better together: 2 babes, 2 laptops and 1 sound.
