*Test_Lab: Live_Coding*

//Code as an interface for improvisation and networked performances.//

December 13^th , 2007, 20:00h, V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media,
Eendrachtsstraat 10, 3012XL, Rotterdam.

This event will be streamed live at http://live.v2.nl/livecoding.ram

Institute, D/NL), Carla Mulder (Lange Poten Theatre Group, NL), Susie
Jae (aka. Jean Van Sloan, US/NL), and V2_Lab.//

A relatively new programming paradigm called Live Coding is redefining
the way in which software can be applied in live performances. While
improvisation has a long history in the arts, the traditional edit ›
compile › run programming model limits software use to predetermined
procedures running alongside a performance; allowing a programmer very
limited improvisation, live alteration, or adjustment of the software
during runtime. In contrast with this traditional model, Live Coding/
/provides expressive control over software code during runtime, which
allows for live (artistic) improvisation by programmers.

In Live Coding, programmers no longer technically assist performers;
they /ar/e (co-)performers, using code as an interface to improvise with
either different types of performers (ranging from dancers to DJs) or in
networks with other live coders.

/Test_Lab: Live_Coding/ will feature debates and presentations on Live
Coding, a networked code jamming performance, live coded music,
introductions and hands-on experiences in Live Coding programming
languages for code improvisation, and a live coded Augmented Reality
experience.
