Algorave – ISEA 2015

Metacreation Lab is proud to present North America’s and Vancouver’s first algorave. An algorave is an event where people dance to music generated from algorithms, often using live coding techniques. Artists produce these sounds by creating music-making algorithms on systems such as IXI Lang, Overtone, Puredata, Max/MSP, SuperCollider, Impromptu, Beads, Fluxus and Tidal. Listen to artist’s breaking barriers as they code live and their compositions appear on screen in real-time.  The movement originated in the computer music research community, and became popular in the UK and across Europe. ISEA2015 is happy to bring you the first such event on the West coast.

Acknowledgments: Vicki Moulder, Curatorial Support;  Kıvanç Tatar, Sound/Tech; Mark Nazemi​, Video Mapping; and Theo Wong​, Graphics.

Beats by GESMI, Arne Eigenfeldt
GESMI is a fully autonomous computationally creative system that generates style-specific electronic dance music based upon a machine-analysed corpus. The corpus consists of 24 Breakbeat and 24 House tracks that have been transcribed by human experts. Aspects of transcription include musical details, timbral descriptions, signal processing, and descriptions of overall musical form. This information is then compiled in a database, and machine-analysed to produce data for generative purposes. GESMI began producing complete breakbeat tracks in March 2013.  Listen to Beats by GESMI, Arne Eigenfeldt

Homage to Studio Vision Pro, Hamster Ate My Garageband (Oliver Bown)
In Homage to Studio Vision Pro, Ollie Bown develops his practice of live generative music performance developed in his electronic music duo Icarus and in various electroacoustic improvisations. Studio Vision Pro was a digital audio workstation similar to Cubase and Logic, but with way better MIDI manipulations tools and a powerful ‘audition’ tool that Icarus adapted for live performance. SVP was dropped in 1999 when makers Opcode were bought out by Gibson. This project is Bown’s simplified imitation of the powerful SVP audition tool, but with generative elements built in along the way.

Sarlacc, Shawn Lawson & Ryan Ross Smith, USA
Sarlacc, an audio-visual performance, features visuals live coded within the OpenGL fragment shader, that are reactive to incoming audio frequencies parsed by band. Sarlacc  merges elements of EDM, J-Pop, Gif-Culture, and mechanical and electronic-inspired audio and visuals. The overall experience is unequal parts pop-culture, abstract expressionism, and glitch-art. Watch Kessel Run

the secret life of Burton (dance version), Marinos Giannoukakis
the secret life of Burton is part of an anthology of real time narratives named “X short stories”, investigating different aspects of narrative construction in multimodal environments, named by the artist as “transconsistent composition”. This version is a real time glitch-minimal techno set controlled by and controlling the virtual environment. The audio events are controlled by actions in the virtual environment while audio feature extraction is used in the audio output to control the narrative in the virtual world.

Alex McLean
A from-scratch “blank slate” live coding performance, improvising percussive techno, and occasionally bringing in and remixing elements from Peak Cut EP. Listen to At last

Techno/Acid House, Norah Lorway
Algorithmic, procedural techno with a twist of acid house.

The abdominal cavity comprises many vital organs that play an important role in the digestion of Cheap Jerseys food and absorption of nutrients into the blood. It is the abdominal wall that holds all these organs in place. So they take what you’ve learned in basic training in infantry school and build upon that, and make you an expert in your desired field. Army ranger, please contact me at, 801 487 8686.. “Verizon is pursuing growth in three categories (Internet of Things, digital media, and 5G) that are somewhat small today, but can eventually contribute to revenue growth and value,” Rollins writes. “We don’t believe Verizon is getting credit for the investments to date and see a bull case emerging cheap jerseys wholesale for 5G.” Rollins has a price target of $60, implying 10% upside.. You see I got the cue ball here. I want to make the one ball there, but I’m going to do it by hitting 3 banks. MLPs underperformed the broader stock market (S 500 +1.0%) but outperformed utilities ( 3.9%), which were crushed by higher interest rates following the blowout jobs report. MLP expectations and prices appear to have priced in a lower 2016 outlook, and a lower for longer commodity price environment. I also add a few cheap jerseys china drops of Dawn liquid. It just seems to add that cheap oakleys extra boost when fighting these stains. I don believe we are a fundamentally different country today than we were two weeks ago, same country with cheap nfl jerseys all its grace and flaws, and cheap nhl jerseys volatility, and insecurity, and strength, and resilience exists today as existed two weeks ago. The same country that elected Donald Trump elected Barack Obama. Here’s the thing though. Some of those owners may want cheap jordans the option of threatening to move their own teams to LA at some point, and that may end up working in St. The problem is that when people don hear from you they naturally assume the worst: just know he hasn done what he said he do. Or, bet she only doing the bare minimum. Have the quarterback alternate running to his right or left and throwing on the move. Most quarterbacks at the high school, college and professional level can throw the ball comfortably and accurately when standing 8 yards behind center in a comfortable “pocket.” But what happens when the heat is on and he is being chased by a defensive lineman or linebacker. You might aspire to shoot only sports, but the reality is that most photographers have to make a living doing other types of shooting on the side, such as weddings or portraits. Even if you aspire to work for a newspaper or magazine, you might be more of a “general assignment” photographer rather than shooting exclusively sports.
