Calendar of Events


Live coding is the act of using algorithms to change an ongoing system, like music or visuals, as part of an artistic expression. Regen Circuit is an art and tech exhibition featuring LiveCode.NYC, a social group and artist collective dedicated to live coding. During their residency at the Harvestworks Art and Technology Building, members will host performances, conduct workshops and presentations, and showcase art. Installation, video, sculpture, and more will be on display. Regen Circuit aims to bring people together to celebrate the art of live coding while creating moments to connect and reflect on the efforts and visions of people in our community.

About LiveCode.NYC

LiveCode.NYC is a New York City-based leaderless social group and artist collective devoted to the real-time programming technique called live coding. Members include artists, engineers, actors, designers, educators, musicians, game developers, and writers. The group has no formal membership or hierarchy, and anyone is welcome to join, attend, participate in, and host algoraves.

Live coding and algoraves (algorithm + rave) are global movements, they “are a way to experience something as abstract as algorithmic music with your whole body, with your mind and with your feet, and everything in between” (Alex McLean). Where traditional music and visuals are effectively opaque, a key component to live coding is transparency, performers display the code which produces the sights and sounds the audience experiences. Some guiding principles of our community include: Exposing algorithmic processes, being wary of established institutions, collapsing hierarchies, respecting other communities, equitable diversity and inclusion in lineups and audiences, and making space for experimentation and failure.
