As part of the European project »on-the-fly«, the ZKM presents an artistic live coding performance by Gaia Leandra.

In live coding, the composition process is brought onto the stage. Algorithms are written and executed live and often improvisationally in the form of source code. Live coding must not be understood as a musical genre, but as a musical performance practice. The musical result is determined by the programmers and can touch on a wide variety of genres.

Gaia Leandra was selected on the occasion of the open call for artistic residencies of the project »on-the-fly«.

During the event, the Italian artist and scientist Gaia Leandra will introduce her artistic project and present a recording of her interactive performance »Bioxeno«. Microscopic organisms and their recorded visual parameters will be made sound in real time by means of live coding.

The event will be held in English.

The event takes place within the framework of the project »on-the-fly« and is co-financed by the program »Creative Europe« of the European Union.
