Live Coding and DIY Instrument & Modular Synth Building festival hits London



An inaugural two-day festival covering Live Coding and DIY instrument/modular synth building launches in London this weekend at Café 1001, Brick Lane on 28 and 29 September.

The RAW and The COOKED is hosted by The Media & Arts Technology Centre and features practical workshops and demonstrations of Live Coding and DIY instrument and modular synth building.  Across the two days, they will bring together many international pioneers including Renick Bell, Tom Whitwell, Ewa Justka, Rob Spencer, Lia Mice, Anna Xambo, Joanne Armitage, Eric Nystrom, and hellocatfood.

The event also welcomes a number of pioneers in these new technologies who will be performing or discussing their specialised field where others have put together workshops that members of the public can join. One of the big features of the event will be a Key Note speech by Renick Bell, probably the most notable name in this forward-thinking movement, followed by a live performance from him in the Algorave.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
