The nature of livecoding is that it is performed (improvised) in-the-moment; the gig (performance) is the output (that’s why it’s called livecoding), and any artefact (e.g. a video recording) is useful documentation, but only a trace of the work itself.
Still, documentation is an important part of one’s artistic practice, so here’s a bunch of photos and videos from my gigs. Some of them are nice & slick-looking, some of them are super-grungy videos shot on smartphones in the crowd. Although I’m working hard to track down any old videos, some of these gigs are lost to time. I like to assume that they were the best ones 😉

National Science Week is such a great event, with so many activities and events designed to get folks engaged with science. Each state also holds a “launch event”, where guest speakers kick things off and just generally get everyone psyched for the coming (science) week.

The AP sessions weren’t a normal gig. They were a series of livecoding gigs I performed in 2014 as part of my student Ari Purcell’s research project: Visualising a Live Coding Arts Process. Ari developed a bunch of visualisation techniques (in Extempore) to use in a livecoding performance. They weren’t just cool VJ visuals, they were designed to be overlaid on top of the code.
