"Live coders write computer programs live, while the programs generate
their music, but the focus is on people dancing and seriously enjoying
- Dazed & confused

"Alexandra Cárdenas has no decks. Instead, she's working on a laptop.
A projection behind shows about 20 lines of code, which she is toying
with, stripping some away, modifying the parameters of others. The
minimal techno starts piling up, reversing on itself. Complex rhythms
emerge, fall away, then come back stronger, energising the crowd.
Cárdenas is completely lost in the music. This is an "algorave", where
humans dance to algorithms." - Wired Magazine

"The scene at an algorave is often what you'd expect from any good
techno night - a dark room, engaging visuals. a decent, bass-heavy
speaker set-up, and lots of people ready to dance. .. performers at
algoraves respond to each other and the audience in real time, often
projecting the lines of code onto the walls as they type. lt’s coding
as improvisation and experiment.." - The Wire magazine
