Chemical Algorave


12 Algoravers from Newcastle, Yorkshire, London, and Birmingham will gather to throw an algorithmic rave where sound and visual generating algorithms are fuelled by molecular dynamics simulation data generated in the design of drugs to treat neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, but where the audience dancing and enjoying the spectacle is at the forefront.


Live coding, auto-coding patches, modular synths and movement driven VJ sets are on the cards with sets from Algorave founder Livedog, inc, Culture Lab's co¥ᄀpt, Calum Gunn, ALGOBABEZ, and Algorave new-comers Heavy Lifting and Charles Céleste Hutchins among the many highlights.


The Algorave will be preceded by Molecular Soundscapes, an immersive multimedia installation by Shelly Knotts and Agnieszka Bronowska, featuring interventions by John Pope, Charles Celeste Hutchins and Holger Ballweg.
