(I assume you’ve done the pre-reading/watching)
the central problem of laptop performance
what do you think oldmate is doing?
control & communication in the (livecoding) animal and the machine
what are the flows of information (control & communication)?
and for whose benefit (cui bono)?
in watching the video, what did you pay attention to, and why?
what information was missing; what else did you want to know before/during/after?
(5min breakout rooms)
hint: later, you’ll get to have your say about how these flows could be improved
set design, which is sometimes referred to as scenic design, refers to the design and creation of the sets used in works of performance art (source)
pitch time—what’s your vision for my (and Ushini’s) livecoding performance setup?
(10min breakout rooms, then 10min shareback)
remember: it’s a pitch… you’ve gotta sell it (with theory!)
1–2 min per group
it’s a genuine open question for me (and other livecoders) in their creative practice
if you’d like to help/collaborate/jam, let me know 😊
