The second meeting of the series will begin with the speech titled “Live Coding as A Form of Expression” by Selçuk Artut and Alp Tuğan, creators of RAW, at 6:30 p.m. today. In the speech, which will be held at the Pera Museum Auditorium, how live coding methods and tools can be integrated into the creation process of electronic music and the extent to which it provides opportunities to the musician regarding original creativity will be addressed in light of theoretical and practical expansion.
Based on the fact that contemporary musicians use the ready-made opportunities provided by technology in creating sound compositions and search for new technologies to create the technologies needed when they believe the existing facilities are insufficient, the speakers will share the particulars of the live coding method, which allows musicians to develop programs in detail that can work in accordance with their specific needs.
