In this performance, a three person, networked live coding performance using the new, AHRC funded MIMIC platform and the maximillian audio library, will be attempted. The performance will be different from previous networked live coding performances because code will automatically, iteratively and remotely be executed on the computers of members of the audience. Whilst most aspects of the performance will remain consistent throughout the networked performers and viewers, there are a number of interesting oddities caused by the approach of local code execution that this performance will look to explore and exploit.
