Join the VR hub at:

A special Algorave which will be hosted in an online VR environment designed by TOPLAP Mexico.

Algorave is a global movement in algorithmic dance music which typically involves live coding music and visuals. The coding interface is normally projected for the audience. This algroave explores how to bring networked algorithms to the dancefloor, including live coding as well as other means of making algorithms visible and club-friendly.

Saturday 18th July

2200-0400 : NMF x TOPLAP Berlin Algorave

A special Algorave to launch the brand new Toplap Berlin VR space in Mozilla Hubs.

An algorave is an event where people dance to music generated from algorithms, often using live coding techniques. Algoraves can include a range of styles, including a complex form of minimal techno, and the the movement has been described as a meeting point of hacker philosophy, geek culture, and clubbing. At an algorave, the computer musician may not be the main point of focus for the audience and instead, attention maybe centered on a screen that displays live coding, that is the process of writing source code, so the audience can not just dance or listen to the music generated by the source code but also to see the process of programming.

The performers at this event are:

Redes De Nadie | αℓõm | Codie | Caider | Aleksandr Yakunichev & Violetta Postnova | Atsushi Tadokoro | hellocatfood+mxwx+The Animalizer | IGnoto | RAW | Royal Laptop Squad | | Alo x digital selves
