November 2019 – Algorave live-coding, AI activisim and historical visualisation – Coral Manton

In November 2019 we had Dr Coral Manton from Bath Spa University speak to the group.

Algoraves are about dancing to live music and visuals made with code.

Coral Manton is an interdisciplinary artist, game developer and technologist with a specialism in data visualisation, interactive design, VR/Mixed-Reality, immersive experiences and live-coding. She is Lecturer in Creative Computing at Bath Spa University.

Coral gave a talk on live-coding music and visuals using open-source software, and present two recent projects, a design activism project, Women Reclaiming AI and a historical visualisation prototype she has created for the SWCTN. She also included a short workshop in making music and visuals with code – as a taster to algorave.

Take a look at Run the code: is algorave the future of dance music?
