Very cool event my friend Thorsten Sideb0ard (of Highpoint Lowlife) is getting going. It’s at Gray Area in the Mission on March 22 and 23, and it looks like I’ll be one of the people giving a talk on the 22nd, that Friday.
Short version: “Two days of talks and two nights of live music, focussed on algorithmic tools and processes.”
A bit more: “Algorithmic Art Assembly is a brand new two day conference and music festival, showcasing a diverse range of artists who are using algorithmic tools and processes in their works. From live coding visuals and music at algoraves, to virtual reality, gaming, augmented tooling, generative music composition, or knot tying, this event celebrates artists abusing algorithms for the aesthetics.”
