Live Music With Projection Mapping



Live Music, Live-Coding, Projection Mapping


“code_xij” is a performance of live coded music. The algorithms of the code create the structure of the music, which therefore does not follow traditional patterns and beats. The performers move along the algorithmic soundscape, and through that, they explore how humans will move along future algorithmic virtual worlds.
“code_xij” can be performed together with segments of “bayes”. “bayes” is music generated by live-coded instruments and intertwined by synths and vocals generated by artificial intelligence algorithms. “bayes” was the first music produced and officially released using a new algorithm for AI sound synthesis developed by Google in early 2020.

The “code_xij” live set consists of minimalistic, avant-garde live-coded electronic music. Visitors enjoy “code_xij’s” virtual landscape, generated by game engines, along the dancey and dreamy set. “code_xi” can include dancers and traditional music instruments. The music follows the algorithms, not a traditional meter. The dancers move along the algorithmic structures only. The vocals in “bayes” consist of physical and AI-generated vocals and represent the future, partly virtual human, in the algorithmic world.

“code_xij” is making algorithms experienceable. It is visualizing and sonifying the codes that build our future world. The project explores how humans will feel, move, and live in future virtual worlds.
