Algorave Madison

✶A night of algorithmic dance music generation✶

Kindohm (Minneapolis)

Kindohm (a.k.a. Mike Hodnick) composes and performs music using live-coding tools such as TidalCycles. His music often avoids characterization by applying inhuman code-based sequences to sharp synths, angular kicks, and gritty claps. He has released music on labels such as Minneapolis-based Always Human tapes, and European computer-music trailblazers Co-Dependent and Conditional. In 2014, Hodnick was a recipient of the Minnesota Emerging Composer Award.

Spednar (Pittsburgh)

"A horrid fusion of musique concrete and malfunctioning enterprise," Kevin Bednar's Spednar is a live coding project that tests the boundaries of breakcore and IDM using generative sound. When applied to a sound system, his rhythmic environments in TidalCycles can distort an audience's sense of time and space.

Tarek Sabbar and Dan Fitch (Madison)

Austere electronic music combining motorik drum machines, bleak ambiance, and angular synthesis, which for one night will be paired with generative visuals from live coder Dan Fitch, who's been making computers blink and stutter since 1985.

17.2m (Madison)

Scott Fradkin brings minimal, low frequency techno to your ears for head nodding or dancing.

1trainwreck (Madison)

Jake Witz's code channels the dark forces of the hardcore continuum. When his mechanized jungle, techno and footwork patterns collide together, the result is something weird, danceable and alive.
