A recording of slub’s set from the EAVI night last week, put on by the group by the same name at Goldsmiths. Sometimes livecoding ‘just works’ – this was one of those times. I’ve uploaded some more photographic evidence here.
In order to get ourselves prepared for the Dagstuhl livecoding seminar (more on that later), we kicked off with a London Algorave at nnnnn, Ryan Jordan’s noise research laboratory in deepest Hackney. Slub had one of our better performances, which was recorded – watch this space.
Larger components make larger sounds.
Massive synth washes and brutal beats from the rock star livecoders Meta-Ex.

Yee-King’s brand new visual acid generating machine reconfigured our minds.
Our second offshore Algorave on the MS Stubnitz, during the ship’s final night in London. The crowd was pleasingly diverse with lots of people new to algorave and livecoding, and although behind the scenes we had some hitches due to the ship’s impending departure for France, the event was relaxed and went smoothly. Our performance was honoured by guest appearance from Elvi$ Ca$h as well as a re-compile of the Al Jazari rave bots. As one of those spending the night on the ship afterwards, I had to be careful not to have too much of a lie in!
Better, and considerably wider angle photos can be found here by Yoshizen.
