Živa, a set of tools for SuperCollider

Live coding music is for everyone!

Živa is a toolset for easy live coding in SuperCollider. During Roger Pibernat’s workshop we’ll be covering everything needed to setup a live coding environment and start playing cool music – in minutes! We’ll start with the installation process, then learn to set up the environment and go through the syntax. We will also learn some tips and tricks for fluent live coding during performances, and wrap it up with a final participants’ jam session.

No prior knowledge of coding or music theory is required. Just bring your laptop and headphones. If you can write, you can live code!

Roger Pibernat, an active member of Barcelona’s growing live coding community, developed Živa, a series of tools and syntax sugar for SuperCollider that help speed up coding and make it easier for beginners during Ljudmila’s research residency.

Roger drew from his experiences with SuperCollider and the issues he’s stumbled upon in his (and his colleagues’) performances. Živa could be considered a guide for live coders who wish to improve their knowledge of the instrument, but is also suitable for complete beginners.
