  • Title

    Musical patterning in a free tool, taught by its creator, for everyone:

    A hands-on workshop, making algorithmic patterns with the free/open source live coding environment TidalCycles, taught by its creator Alex McLean. Participants will explore ways to create complex patterns from simple parts, applying techniques of repetition, symmetry, interference and glitch. The workshop will be accessible to all, no prior experience with code or music necessary.

    Bring a laptop with Tidal already installed - see https://tidalcycles.org/getting_started.html. If you have problems with the installation get in touch and we can help you out! (We'll also schedule a meetup before the workshop to assist.)

    Come, learn, code, jam - and stick around for a concert/party in the evening featuring Alex and other artists.


    Premiere / institutional registration available. Sponsored institutions are asked to support our institutional rate, which helps us bring Alex to Berlin from the UK and will enable future events.

    If desired, in exchange, we'll include your brand/institution on the event and coverage on CDM.link
