LOSS Livecode Festival

  Sheffield, UK — 20-22 July 2007
  
  in association with Access Space, TOPLAP and lurk
  
  When we improvise music, we are creating music while it is being performed. “Live Coding” is the creation of software while it is being executed; the software in turn generating music or video.
  
  Thanks to dynamic programming languages, the live coder is able to modify and extend their program without restarts, their music and/or visual growing with the code that describes it. This way of working allows instant results for every sourcecode edit. Programming becomes a fast, creative process – expressive enough that a whole audio/visual performance may be created as software.
  
  Live Coding began during the 1980s, primarily with FORTH and Lisp. In recent years new live coding environments and languages such as Chuck, Fluxus, Impromptu and SuperCollider 3 have appeared, with enthusiastic communities growing around them. Live Coding performances have also used PureData, Scheme, Perl, Haskell, Ruby, Python…
  
  In early 2004 the “Temporary Organisation for the Promotion of Live Algorithm Programming” (TOPLAP) was formed to support open dialog between all live coders. Since its early beginnings in a smoky bar in Hamburg, TOPLAP has reached 178 members worldwide, gaining coverage in mass media and collaboratively organising several international meetings.
  
  In 2005 Access Space initiated the L.O.S.S. project (http://loss.access-space.org) to support free music creativity and distribution. It featured a series of commissions leading to a Creative Commons licensed audio CD and repository website produced entirely with open source tools.
  
  Continuing their series of LOSS commissions and events, Access Space have teamed up with TOPLAP and lurk to create a three day international festival, bringing live coding musicians and video artists together to explore and showcase new approaches in live performing and participatory arts.
  
  CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
  
  Your performance and/or presentation proposal is called for.
  
  For the latest version of this call, please refer to http://livecode.access-space.org/
  
  Commissions are available to help realise ambitious projects and performances. Presenters and performers will gain free entry throught the festival, and those without institutional support may apply for a small bursary.
  
  IMPORTANT DATES
  
  14th March – Call for participation
  14th April – Deadline for proposals
  1st May – Notification of acceptance
  16th June – Copy deadline for proceedings (to be confirmed)
  20th-22nd July – Conference – schedule TBA
  PRESENTATIONS
  
  Short (up to 20 minute) presentations during a day long symposium. The remit is broad, but possible subjects may include
  
  A demo of a novel live coding language/environment
  Historical context of live coding
  Live coding without computers
  Critique of live coding practice
  Live patching
  Reflections on live coding experiences
  Adapting general purpose languages to live coding
  Analysis of live coding performances
  Live algorithms that live code
  Life coding
  Portable live coding devices
  Reflective/self-modifying code
  Live visualisation of sourcecode
  Collaborative networked live coding
  …
  Proposals do not have to be long – however much or little you need to explain your ideas is fine.
  
  If you are unsure if you can make it, submit your idea anyway – we may be able to accommodate a small number of remotely streamed presentations for those unable to attend in person.
  
  There will also be time for a brief (around three hours) introductory workshop. Please indicate if you would like to be involved.
  
  PERFORMANCES
  
  There will be at least two evenings of performances, ranging from 10 to 40 minutes. Please outline what you would like to perform, including technical requirements. We plan to have at least three data projectors, many pairs of small speakers for participatory improvisations, enough headphone amps for 100 pairs of headphones, and a big stereo soundsystem for ‘traditional’ performances. Please state your preference, and feel free to be creative (see commissions below).
  
  We are also thinking about a pre-event in London, UK some days before the festival, let us know if you would like to take part.
  
  PROCEEDINGS
  
  If your proposal is accepted will be encouraged to submit short texts and images for publication in the proceedings. All speakers and performers will receive a free copy at the beginning of the conference.
  
  COMMISSIONS
  
  If you would like time or resources to develop a new way of performing, some new language or software feature, or something else interesting then please include a short estimated budget in your brief, which may include an artist fee. Note that due to funding constraints the project should have a strong audio component. The maximum commission will be of £1000 (about 1470 euro).
  
  BURSARY
  
  A small bursary is available to contribute towards travel and accommodation. Please include an estimated budget for your attendance and we will apportion this money based on need. Money is however very short, if you are a member of an academic institution we are keen to help you apply for local funding.
  
  PROPOSAL SUBMISSION
  
  Preferably in plaintext, but all common formats are accepted. Supporting material including web links to previous work, audio and video files are welcome but not mandatory.
  
  Proposals should arrive before midnight, 14th April 2007.
  
  Proposals are accepted by email (preferred):
  
   livecode@access-space.org
  Or by post:

  4. certainly like your website but you have to take a
    look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very troublesome to inform the reality then again I will definitely come again again.

Lily is an open source, browser-based, visual programming environment written in JavaScript. Lily enables users to build programs graphically by connecting functional modules to fetch and direct the flow of data, play sound or video, add animation or interactivity, and display results. Lily programs can be shared with other Lily users, installed as Firefox add-ons or run as standalone apps using XULrunner.

lily的出现象征着net.art某些思路的变革,它将网站模式扩展,基于网络但又不限于网络。
想到的模式,利用lily完成firefox的add-ons,将add-ons作为控制器,貌似processing也能完成类似过程,但是基于java的processing在web的表现能力还是较逊色。

processing.org

processing不温不火地发展,lib的完善,使得使用更简单,两本书(emule上有)

MIT.Press.Processing.A.Programming.Handbook.for.Visual.Designers.and.Artists.Sep.2007.pdf
Processing Creative Coding and Computational Art 2007.pdf

Handbook讲解的比较浅显,08年应该会出中文版,解决版权的问题有专人来做
Processing Creative Coding and Computational Art非常值得一读,也要求读者编程水平较高以及对图象学有一定研究。

还有就是del.icio.us/aaajiao/processing
收集code是学习的过程。

用facebook必须反应机灵,上次打盹挂在facebook,才换上情色头像,当我再次回过神时,已经被删号,发信求证,结论是使用情色头像所致,回信还强调已经发信提醒过(恐吓),罢了,并不相信facebook的用户粘贴性有这么高。附上色情照。

我明白简单的是什么,也开始学会用真的善去面对事情和人。
我明白yang2说的工具的意思了。
解脱。
