One of our members, Lucy, was asked to speak to the Guardian recently after our performance at Sheffield’s AlgoMech festival. They made a short documentary about the Algorave scene and, very rightly, spent a bit of time talking about the importance of gender balance and how female live coders are shaping its future. You don’t have to be super amazing at programming to start making music with code either – it’s a super fun and welcoming community. You can watch the video below:
We’ve got a few performances coming up over the next few weeks that we’re very excited about. We’ll be part of a star-studded line up at Sheffield’s AlgoMech Algorave on November 11th alongside some live coding legends and a robotic programmer. We’ll also be playing at an Algorave in Derby on December 1st and appearing an Engine’s album launch gig in Leeds on December 7th.
