mathr aka Claude Heiland-Allen is an artist from London interested in the complex emergent behaviour of simple systems, unusual geometries, and mathematical aesthetics.
Clive is an audio live-coding skeleton, implemented in C. It supports a two-phase edit-commit coding cycle allowing long-lived signal processing graphs to be modified without interrupting the sound. Performance with Clive usually involves pre-preparation, from simple unit generators up to more complete compositions. The live-coding aspect involves editing a file in the performer’s favourite text editor, with the act of saving with Ctrl-S or other shortcut being timed to allow the new code to start executing in sync after the latency of compilation.
Deerful is Emma Winston, a London-based singer-songwriter, ethnomusicologist, PhD student, producer, live-coder, and algorithmic pixie dream girl. Her most recent record, Tell Me I Can Fix This On My Own, examines friendship, loss, potted plants, and the only episode of Black Mirror with a happy ending through live-coded electropop songs. She exists in a perpetual state of being far too excited about making things.
Emma will play a set of songs and instrumentals in the live-coding environment ixi lang.
One of lnfiniteMonkeys, w1n5t0n enjoys live coding (in) time.
When playing TimeLines, a modular synthesizer and sequencer embedded in the Haskell programming language, w1n5t0n likes to think of music as a direct, explicit function of time. In other words, music is what happens when time flows through a mathematical function. It may be long and very particular about its composition, but it’s ultimately made out of many simple, perhaps even trivial, parts.
The result of that function travelling through time is a wave, which then goes on to travel through space and make air (and somehow humans too) dance.
One of w1n5t0n‘s favourite activities is looking for a different function every time and playing with it while it unfolds.
* 0xA is a mess.
* 0xA is version controlled, so it’s OK.
* 0xA committers are using computers.
* 0xA has been around for a decade.
* 0xA rarely sounds the same twice (both bug and feature)
* 0xA means 11 in hexadecimal.
* 0xA has a Japanese launch model Mega Drive.
* 0xA told you so.

peb is the moniker of electronic musician Daniel Evans. Their work is concerned with alternative harmonies, meandering pulses and extreme acoustic precision, where sound is seen as an inextricable part of space. Their research is in computational models of intonation and tuning, offering new horizons that would be unrealisable in the physical world. Their live performances involve the creation of immersive sonic environments.
Harry Murdoch plays music as hmurd, 1/2 of Cherche Encore and part of Music Hackspace.
