Introduction to TidalCycles Workshop
This hands-on workshop is a practical introduction to Tidalcycles, a free and open source platform for live coding musical patterns. The platform enables making musical patterns with code, whether live coding music at algoraves or composing in the studio.
In this workshop we will cover everything you need to get up and running with TidalCycles (or just Tidal for short) – a free and open source platform for live coding musical patterns. Starting with the basics of installation and running the software, through to programming beats and manipulating samples, we’ll look at all the elements required for you to start putting together your own live coding sets from scratch.
This workshop is part of Algorithmic Art Assembly, a festival featuring talks and live music focused on algorithmic tools and processes.
* This workshop ticket must be purchased separately and is not included in the festival passes.
