Live coding music patterns with TidalCycles
An introduction to TidalCycles with creator Alex McLean, and its playful, pattern-based approach to making live music with code.
Alex is a musician, software artist and researcher based between Sheffield and Munich. He is active across the digital arts, co-founding the Algorave and TOPLAP live coding movements, and the AlgoMech festival for algorithmic and mechanical movement. He created the popular free/open source TidalCycles live coding environment for music, performing with it at festivals around the world including Sonar, Glastonbury, STRP, Vivo, Transmediale, Ars Electronica and No Bounds. As a researcher he works part time as part of the PENELOPE project, investigating the structures of ancient weaves, and re-inserting weaving in the history of science and technology.
