HI everyone,

Algorave India presents an open source workshop based on Gibber, Sonic Pi & TidalCycles.
Algoraves are about dancing and listening to live music made with code, and over the last few years have become a global
phenomena bringing creative coding centre stage into the world of performing arts.

This is a practice based workshop where participants are expected to follow along with the facilitators to become familiar
with live coding patterns and practices in a few creative coding platforms. These allow you to make musical patterns with
programming, describing sequences and ways of transforming and combining them, exploring complex interactions
between simple parts. All of this platforms are built and distributed as free open source software that runs on macOS,
Windows and Linux. At the end of the workshop participants will be equipped to explore the world of creative coding on
their own at their own pace and interests.

Workshop facilitators:

Abhinay Khoparzi is a multidisciplinary creative technologist who maintains a practice across film, video, music and web technologies. He has had a long relationship with the experimental electronic music scene in Mumbai with performances at venues and events like The Indian Electronica Festival, (Blue Frog), 6 Foot Oscillator in a 4 foot Room (Zenzi Mills), Floatsam with Mukul Deora and Piere-Paolo Allesanderello (Volte). He is also known for his collaborative performances with artists like Kargo Pluggy, Sadahnmo from the varied roster of the pioneering but now defunct web platform, netlabel, and publishing company 3rd Thought Entertainment.

Raia is an artist and teacher who plays live coded music in Sonic Pi. Using accessible tools to produce, she believes in creativity for all, and that mission includes sharing knowledge in a meaningful way. Find her jamming on the internet or IRL making music in coding labs.

In this workshop we will show participants the basics of programming drum, bass and melody patterns with a subset of Javascript inside the Gibber environment, just enough to help participants make melodies and beats in their browsers without committing to the install process of a full blown live coding setup. Interested members can use the time spent on this to run through the installation process of TidalCycles or Sonic-pi on their machines.

2.Anatomy of a Track in Sonic Pi
Let's break down the basic functions or “instruments” that work together to create a song in Sonic Pi. From beats to synthesizers, samples and fx, we'll also explore live coding in performance settings. Come with 200MB (yes, you read that right) available on your hard drive, headphones (not earbuds), and let's jam! Link - https://sonic-pi.net/tutorial.html

This workshop will take participants further into the world of music technology and programming concepts.
We will cover basics of samples, MIDI, OSC and rudimentary music theory. We will practice example code patterns
that produce familiar sounding music in various styles that can be used as building blocks for compositions
and performances. We will do a breakdown of the various pieces in the TidalCycles environment, introducing SuperCollider
and some rudimentary techniques in Haskell, and Atom editor for customising their programming environment.

For participants who don’t mind getting their hands dirty we would recommend installing SuperCollider and Haskell
platform on their choice of OS as the process can get a bit involved. This however is not a requirement as we will try
to assist everyone at the venue.

This event organised by Algorave India and Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan and is part of the ongoing exhibition "Open Codes. Digital Culture Techniques", on view at Gallery MMB till June 2, 2018. In collaboration with ZKM, Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany.

Note: We will be organising more workshops in the future, so sign up to be in loop!
