Solo Live Coding

My creative practice includes solo live coding performances. Live Coding involves writing software that makes music (or anything else If you prefer) as pat of the performance. It is a practice that is like improvised composition, where musical processes are described in computer code and executed and modified on the …

Slice-Flower: A computational art work

Through the work Slice-Flower Andrew Soresne and Andrew R. Brown (aka: aa-cell) explore the aesthetic potential of computational expression. The work is part of a series that explore the potential of algorithms that occupy 10 lines of computer code: a kind of digital haiku. Slice-flower features multiple dichotomies, between slices …

Live Coding with aa-cell

With Andrew Sorensen, I’ve been part of the live coding duo aa-cell since 2005. In live coding, musical algorithms are coded and edited during the performance. Typically, the laptop screens are projected so the audience can see how the music builds and changes. This practice is an adaptive process because …
