DINA, 32 Cambridge Street, Sheffield, S1 4HP
From AlgoMech to Algo/Mesh -- pushing the strange art of partying forward, through algorithms and mechanisms.
Room 1: Algorave, Sheffield style - a full-on party with top algorithmic producers and live coders who properly know how to make you dance to code. Will include algorithmic bassline, mechanical techno, light-controlled electronica, and live coding with a playstation..
Room 2: When the algorave gets too much, relax with chilled-out experiments including algorithmic synth-pop, classical guitar misappropriated as a coding interface, algorithmic Siberian trance, and loads more..
Huge + emerging line-up - see below!
Algorave is a combination of "algorithms" and "rave", the opportunity to dance to alien rhythms and freaky visuals, all created from code before your eyes. The Algorave scene is fast-growing around the world, with Sheffield a strong centre, building on its fine roots in electronic music history.
£8 + booking fee
