Live Coding Presentation and Performance

Live Coding is music performance practice that involves creating the sonic and/or symbolic aspects of music through computer programming. These elements are coded as part of the performance. Therefore, an important aspect of developing live coding practice is the search for efficient and expressive musical processes and their computational representation. This event will outline ongoing research into these expressive musical processes by Dr. Andrew Brown. The presentation will combine discussion, demonstration and performance.

Hosted by the College of Charleston’s Computing in the Arts program, this lively event will take place on Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012, 5:30 – 6:30 p.m., in room 234 of The Marion and Wayland H. Cato Jr. Center for the Arts, 161 Calhoun St. FREE FOR ALL!

Dr. Andrew R. Brown is a musician, educator, researcher, software developer and author. His professional interests include technologies that support creativity and learning. Dr. Brown’s creative activities focus on digital audio-visual works using generative processes and musical live-coding performances. He is Professor of Digital Arts at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University, Australia.

Computing in the Arts is an interdisciplinary BA degree offered by the Department of Computer Science in the School of Sciences and Mathematics and the Departments of Music, Art History, Studio Art, and Theatre in the School of the Arts.
