Coming up, the 2nd on-the-fly cantina!
May's Monday meetup is titled: "How alive is a live-streamed Algorave?"
As corona-life well and truly passes the one year mark, let us take a moment to reflect on live-streamed Algoraves and other live-coded performances. Whilst these online events have become an integral part of cultural life, how much of the Algorave essence and vibe is still there? Are we dancing in our living rooms, pumping the music loud enough to feel the beats in our bones? Are live-coders still making the same type of music for the at home Algorave experience? Or is it anyway time to focus more on live streamed performances so as to reduce the carbon footprint of the touring artists and to level the playing field for those who can't afford or are unable to travel?
