Live Coding Concert Thursday 18 April, 19:00h. Chalton Gallery

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.
