Update. Hybrid Labs LIVE CODING VISUALS WITH HYDRA by OLIVIA JACK
Introduction to live coding using the web-based video synthesiser Hydra (http://hydra.ojack.xyz/). Inspired by analog modular synthesis, Hydra allows multiple visual sources (oscillators, cameras, application windows, remote video streams) to be transformed, modulated, and composited via combining sequences of functions. The workshop will be an introduction to creative coding and creating live visuals using this flexible system. No prior experience necessary! A laptop or computer and headphones is required to participate.
Lead by creative programmer and artist Olivia Jack (US/DE) who works frequently with open-source software, cartography, live coding, and experimental interfaces. Her research interests include algorithmic representations of uncertainty and chaos, peer2peer networking, and live coding as a way to enter into a continuous dialogue or feedback loop between herself and her computer.
