A live coding device album
IDEA: A little device running software, which will processes algorithms that make the music, so open to remix it by playing with the code.
WHAT: 'Spicule' is an album released as a Pi Zero device with high quality audio in a custom case, allowing the tracks to be remixed using the custom made TidalCycles software, which is a free open source live coding environment. It allows you to make musical patterns with text, describing sequences and ways of transforming and combining them, exploring complex interactions between simple parts. 'Spicule LP' is Alex’s first solo album, following on from 'Peak Cut EP', both released on Sheffield label Computer Club with design by Human. 'Spicule' will be available in the form of the ‘Live Coding Device’ (LCD), a strictly limited run of 100 via PledgeMusic.
WHY: The free and open-source version of a live processing album, give the feeling of being part of the creation and feels close to a live performance.
