Catalyst/YSWN: Live Coding with TidalCycles: the patterns of music

TidalCycles (or Tidal for short) is a language for live coding pattern. It allows you to make musical patterns with text, describing sequences and ways of transforming and combining them, exploring complex interactions between simple parts.

In this workshop, Alexandra Cardenas taught the basic functioning of TidalCycles, what Live Coding is and how think about music creation in a new way.  Alexandra showed us the practice of Live Coding and how to make performances where composition, improvisation and programming join to create music.
