Practices and Techniques for Networked Live Coding Bands
The workshop will share the cybernetic orchestra’s current practices, and techniques applicable to ensemble use of the Estuary live coding platform.
The Cybernetic Orchestra is pleased to offer a workshop on rehearsal and performance practices for networked live coding bands.
Our workshop will share and teach the orchestra’s current practices, which continue to evolve in our weekly online rehearsals, as well as specific techniques applicable to ensemble use of the Estuary live coding platform.
The discussion of different practices/techniques will be led by different members of the orchestra, all of whom will be on hand to assist participants with particular challenges, provide additional perspective on issues discussed, etc.
The workshop might be thought of as a kind of “open rehearsal” where we present the social, artistic, and technical things that happen in a typical meeting of the group for discussion and exploration.
Participants will come out of the workshop with techniques for forming and running their own networked bands on the Estuary platform.
15 max. participants
- participants will learn to apply rehearsal exercises and performance structures oriented to large-group networked live coding
- specific techniques in the Estuary platform that assist with the activities of collaborative groups.
Equipment/software requirements: access to a computer and browser compatible with Estuary (at the time of writing this probably means something built within the past 4-5 years, using the Google Chrome or Chromium browsers).
