“Art, Not Apart” Festival
As per the Art, Not Apart website
Livecoding: it’s programming as performance—beats from bits. See music and visuals made with code, right in front of your eyes. Everything you can see and hear is programmed live by Ben Swift and Torben Sko using their own custom software. No canned loops; only the freshest locally produced sustainable organic hipster vegan beats for your enjoyment.
This gig was my first livecoding collaboration with media artist Torben Sko. No full video survives—just the following short fragment of the very start of the performance. Torb isn’t in shot, but he’s making the colours change on the screen.
