From the first live coding performances, which often took place in experimental or academic computer music concert settings, Algorave emerged to bring live coding into the night clubs for people to dance to. Now Algorave is 10 years old!
What have we learned about live coding throughout this decade?
How did Electronic Dance Music needs shape our live coding tools and practices? Did we break down the barriers between the people creating the software algorithms and the people making the music? Is Algorave still made from "sounds wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive conditionals" or what actually is an Algorave after all?
