Betreff: [cec-c] International Conference on Live Coding 2016
Hello CEC and ACMA,
Next week marks the second International Conference on Live Coding (ICLC
2016), set to take place at venues across the McMaster University campus
and the city of Hamilton. Upwards of 60 artists and artist-researchers
will spend 4 days giving workshops, panels, presentations and – above
all – performances, culminating in an algorave (all night dance event
with all the music live coded) at Hamilton’s Spice Factory.
Many conference events take place in McMaster’s LIVELab, a research
centre and performance space that includes an active acoustics system, a
large multi-channel speaker array addressed via network audio, a video
wall and a Disklavier piano. The conference will intervene in Hamilton’s
monthly art crawl, with a night of performances at art crawl venues.
Keynote presenters are Andrew Sorensen (Australia), and Amy Alexander
and Curt Miller (USA) and the algorave will be headlined by algorave
co-founder Alex McLean (UK) and closed by Mexican electronica duo Mico
Rex. Panel topics include ensembles/collaboration, live coding and
visuals, and issues of equity and inclusion.
Full details about the conference and schedule are available at the
conference website: iclc.livecodenetwork.org/2016
The conference has been made possible by support from a wide variety of
sources including a Connections grant from the Social Sciences and
Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Faculty of
Humanities, the Department of Communication Studies and Multimedia, the
School of the Arts, the Gender Studies and Feminist Research Program and
the Sherman Centre for Digital Scholarship at McMaster University,
Hamilton Artists Inc, Factory Media Centre, Centre3 and others.
While all conference events are free, advance registration is required –
there are separate registrations for the conference and the algorave.
Details about registration are to be found on the Schedule page of the
above-mentioned website. These free tickets/registrations are very close
to “selling out”, so if you were thinking about coming and are ready to
commit – now might be the time…
Hope to see some of you there!
