Informally coordinated from Sheffield, AlgoRave has spread into a worldwide
movement, reaching 50 cities over the past five years. At AlgoMech we’ll be
taking it to the next level with immersive algorithmic visuals, and
handmade music-generating mechanical systems and robots mixed in with the

Another unmissable event is *Sonic Pattern*, a seated concert featuring
musicians who get hands-on, building their own mechanisms to make
other-worldly music, including hacked gramophones and accordions,
pedal-power violins and other sonic machines. Leafcutter John will headline
Sonic Pattern, with new mechanical work developed in residency during the
