Algoraves is a dance movement that merges technology and the club scene, where DJs create tracks live using software.

Algoraves‘ are a new kind of rave where people dance along to music generated by algorithms. Merging technology and the club scene, DJs create tracks live using software as people dance. The website explains:

Algorave is made from “sounds wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive conditionals”. These days just about all electronic music is made using software, but with artificial barriers between the people creating the software algorithms and the people making the music. Using systems built for creating algorithmic music, such as IXI Lang, overtone, puredata, Max/MSP, SuperCollider, Impromptu or Fluxus, these barriers are broken down, and musicians are able to compose and work live with their music as algorithms.

With Algoraves, the focus isn’t on what the musician is doing, but on the music and people dancing to it. Algoraves embrace the alien sounds of raves from the past and introduce futuristic rhythms and beats made through strange, algorithm-aided processes. You can check out an Algorave in the video below:
