As part of the hackathon »Coding da Vinci«, the ZKM is hosting a free concert evening that brings together live coding performances by outstanding artists.
Live coding describes an artistic practice and creative technique in which computer programs are written in real time and on stage. The audience will be able to look over the performers' shoulders as they spontaneously produce sound and images while experiencing an audiovisual concert program. Closely related to mathematics and computer science, live coding is a powerful tool for promoting artistic research, digital creation, and technological literacy.
»Coding Culture« is part of the »on-the-fly« project and is co-funded by the European Union's Creative Europe program. It takes place in cooperation with the Institute for Music Informatics and Musicology at the Karlsruhe University of Music.
