Description

The RAW and the COOKED

The RAW and The COOKED is a two day ‘happening’ of new approaches to musical creation and creativity. Fostering an open source ethos to sharing and developing new (and existing) skills, the event brings together the best of today's pioneering musical movements.


The event, hosted by the Media & Arts Technology Centre for Doctoral Training at Queen Mary University of London, fuses practical workshops and demonstrations with theoretical presentations of current practice in Live Coding and DIY instrument/modular synth building. Targeting both complete beginners and experts alike the daytime section of the events opens up new possibilities and tools, which are explored further during two evenings of live performances in an informal club environment.

Day 1 - The RAW

The RAW focusses on Live Coding and code based approaches to the real time creation of sound and image. For those yet to make its acquaintance, Live Coding is the creation of sonic or visual content generated through the execution of computer code in real time.

The daytime part of the event features workshops hosted by experienced live coders, where newcomers will be guided through the processes in a practical environment, leading to an effective working knowledge of the practice. Experienced users will be able to build on existing skills, branch out into new applications and develop a greater understanding of the craft guided by lightning presentations from experienced performers.

The day rounds off with an Algorave, a live coded audio visual spectacular featuring performances from some of the UK's leading lights in audio visual coded performance.

Day 2 - The COOKED

The COOKED focuses on DIY instrument and modular building, and features hands on workshops to make and develop your own musical instrument or synthesizer module. The Bela team guide you through the process of using their lightning fast single board computer to make low latency interactive prototypes, and GMSN! will be on site to supervise the construction of one of their newest eurorack modules.

Please note: you will need to register for a supplemtary ticket to secure your place on each workshop.

There will also be trade stands from some of the UK’s leading modular outlets, and modular systems to learn and experiment on and keynote presentations from experts in the instrument and modular world.

The day leads into a night of live electronic performance, featuring some of the leading lights in DIY creativity, electronic trickey and new and alternative approaches to live performance.
