Huddersfield Social March 14th – Tidal Cycles demonstration

– Tuesday March 14th 2017
– Time: 6.30 – 9pm
– Venue: Huddersfield University, Queensgate, Huddersfield, HD1 3DH

Our Huddersfield social will focus on TidalCycles. We’re thrilled that Heavy Living (Lucy Cheesman) is visiting from Sheffield YSWN to demo the basics. It’s a really informal share meet and the time may change but if you’re interested please keep us posted so that we know who to send info to. If you’re on Facebook you can join the event here.

Lucy will demonstrate the basics of creating musical patterns using the TidalCycles.org live coding environment.

Lucy Cheesman (Heavy Lifting) got involved with YSWN in 2015 as a total beginner to electronic music and she has been live coding and playing gigs as Heavy Lifting for the best part of a year. As well as organising YSWN activity in Sheffield, Lucy also co-organises a monthly Tidal Club with TidalCycles developer Alex McLean http://slab.org/.

If you wish to try out the software yourself please install in advance following the instructions available on the TidalCycles website https://tidalcycles.org/getting_started.html . IMPORTANT: we don’t have time during this session to install the software. If you can install it beforehand please go ahead and do so but we plan for you to be able to use the university computers if there is time after a demonstration from Lucy.
