Live coding workshop Sat 18th January

No prior programming experience is needed.

This day workshop will explore the ideas behind live coding, mostly
through hands-on exploration of two of the most accessible live coding
environments around: IxiLang developed by Thor Magnusson and Tidal
developed by Alex McLean.
We will also talk about the philosophies and musical approaches behind
the live coding movement. Participants will have the opportunity to feed
their ideas and experiences back into the development of these freely
available, open source systems.

Free, but limited spaces available - to apply to take part email a
paragraph explaining your interest in live coding to
jake at access-space.org by 20th December.
