12 April, 6-9pm
SPACE Mare Street
Free and all welcome
Join us for the closing of the Focus – Next Showcase with an evening of Algorave experimentation. Starting in London seven years ago, the Algorave movement incorporates live coding into music and visual making, projecting the results for the audience in real-time.
Algoraves embrace the sounds of raves from the past and introduce alien, futuristic rhythms made through this strange, algorithm-aided process. It’s up to those on the dance floor to help the musicians make sense of the sounds and do the real creative work in making a great party.
Celebrating the end of our six-month residency process exploring the intersections between technology and artistic practice, the Algorave movement encompasses the ethos of experimentation that the SPACE Art + Tech programme reflects. Over the course of the event, the audience will get the chance to view the final outcomes of the Focus – Next and InProcess residency artists, while they take in the Algorave sights and sounds in SPACE’s main gallery.
