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
building on its fine roots in electronic music history.


"The scene at an algorave is often what you'd expect from any good
techno night - a dark room, engaging visuals. a decent, bass-heavy
speaker set-up, and lots of people ready to dance. .. performers at
algoraves respond to each other and the audience in real time, often
projecting the lines of code onto the walls as they type. lt’s coding
as improvisation and experiment.." - The Wire magazine

""Live coders write computer programs live, while the programs
generate their music, but the focus is on people dancing and seriously
enjoying themselves" - Dazed and Confused

".. not so much a revolution as a de-volution, a rolling back to the
backend of music production, where the possibilities of the encoded
information inside computer software is open and endless" - Mixmag
