Abstract:

This paper introduces a performative ecosystem created with the aim of promoting a joint expression between a live coder and an instrumentalist. The live coding environment is based on TidalCycles, controlling a sample machine implemented in SuperCollider. The instrumentalist can record short samples of his/her playing in different buffers, which the live coder can then process. The ecosystem was intensively used by the first and the second author of this paper (respectively live coder and violinist) to develop a performance. At the end of this paper, we provide a number of reflections on the entanglement of the different roles and agencies that emerged during the rehearsals.
