Live coding

OHAM is still going to be a few more months I fear, looking good tho!


Nice one! Am I going to have to start saving up for crazy academic book pricing?

Other live coding languages with interesting pattern languages:

as well as supercollider itself


I think it’s not going to be cheap :confused: but it will be a large book, and authors will be able to share preprints

You might want to try out MUD for patterns in Overtone, doesn’t seem to be as elegant as Tidal’s though.

Ooh, while investigating FoxDot, I ran across this:

This might be the best solution net for

Now back to trying to make FoxDot work…

Edit: Still having problems with FoxDot, but I just realized Gibber also allows for collaborative real-time editing.

@s_hamann posted it at the start of this thread – wild how a few months can open something up. karlsson’s work on this is just beautiful.


Thanks Dan, missed that one! Lovely stuff
BTW there are is an ‘official’ tidal channel on youtube with growing playlists:


can’t wait to read it. let us know when you have anything new to share!

Happy to announce that a generic MIDI version of gibberwocky is now available:

Runs in the browser (well, Chrome and Opera) and should talk with any MIDI hardware or DAWs; no plugins or closed-source software required. Please let me know if you have a chance to try it out! - Charlie


This just ended. I probably should have posted it before that. They are all recorded at least :slight_smile:


You can see all the various performances here:

And congrats to @cannc for debuting (at least I think it was the debut) a really cool new tool for composing/performing with Tidal as part of the event:


thanks @charlieroberts It’s still in pretty early stage :slight_smile: your gibber set was dope as heck too!

Belated welcome @charlieroberts ! I’m taking a look at gibberwocky now. Where’s the best place to ask questions if I hit snags? Should I start another thread here or is there someplace better?

Hi @ppqq. There’s a gibber mailing list where gibberwocky questions are most welcome:

… and there’s also a gibber channel on the live coding slack:

Looking forward to hearing what you think! - Charlie

Thanks for these pointers!

I was about to post a plea for help when I got things working. (Take-away: a quick video demonstrating setup would be super handy.) Anyway, I have some exploring to do but will chime in when I get somewhere.

gibberwocky.max is now available via the Max package manager. You can read a bit more about it on the Cycling '74 website, where there’s also a nice video tutorial / introduction that Graham made.
