If you follow me on twitter you’ve seen this already, but over the last couple of months I’ve been hard at work on an AI art installation called Panic. This was a collaboration with Adrian Schmidt—I did the software, he did the hardware (including the cool, 6” diameter Panic! button).

Great news on the local computer music conference front: the Australian Institute of Music is hosting the ACMC conference in Sydney/Melbourne/online at the end of August ‘21. I’ll be there—and if you’re a computers-and-music-adjacent artist then you should think about submitting a paper, artist talk or performance as well.

Yesterday’s LENS class discussion turned into an AMA of how I do certain things when I’m livecoding in Extempore. As promised, here’s a blog post where I’ve put together all of the things we’ve discussed (with a bit more explanation). If you’re in the LENS ‘21 class this’ll hopefully be a helpful complement to yesterday’s class discussion. If you’re not in the class, then maybe you’ve always been curious about certain things I (over)use in my livecoding sets? This is maybe a bit too niche to go in the general Extempore documentation, but if you’ve got any questions then you can hit me up on Teams (for LENS students) or the Extempore mailing list (everyone else).

Good news everyone; we’re hosting the annual Australasian Computer Music Conference (ACMC) at the ANU this year from July 8–11. ACMC is a festival of gigs, talks, installations and hands-on tutorials designed to inspire, challenge, and showcase the computer music community. There’s lots more information on the conference website.

These tutorials are part of Xinyu Hou’s research project to create a set of PRIMM-style tutorials for learning to make sound/music in Extempore.

For those who visit my blog to hear my livecoding gigs, there’s one this Friday. If you wanna see me perform with Charles Martin (on percussion & electronics) and Kieran Browne on livecoded visuals (live GLSL shader hacking). We’re playing 5:30pm–7:30pm @ Drill Hall Gallery as part of the Ildiko Kovacs: The DNA of colour exhibition.

In case you missed it, I was interviewed for an article on the ABC News website which came out last weekend entitled The Australians making music with computer code. A nice look at some of the players in the Australian livecoding scene.

I’ve just finished reading Charlie Roberts’ interactive web essay on
annotations and visualisations for live
code. If you
haven’t read it, go do that now—and make sure you have some
speakers/headphones to listen to the code examples, because it would be a real
shame to read it without watching/listening to his ideas in action. All the code
samples (with the visual annotations) are live-editable, both running “whole
blocks” and re-evaluating individual expressions with

I’m trying to find all the photos of me doing livecoding gigs over the past 10 years. If you’ve got an old photo of me doing my thing, then can you either email or tweet at me to share it? I’ll give you authoreal credit and hugs.

One of the coolest parts of my job is doing livecoding gigs—here’s a recent set I did at Smiths as part of Soundscapes #21. A big shout-out to Ushini Attanayake (not in the video, sadly) who did a fantastic job of her first livecoding set.

I’m playing a livecoding set at the ACT Science Week launch party tonight. Sorry about the late notice to anyone who uses this blog to come to my gigs—I really should set up a newsletter or something. I think there are still a few tickets left ($5, available from the website linked above).
