New on tape and digital, a two-trrack album from live-coding duo, Algobabez. Burning Circuits is a pair of 20 minute algorithmic jams using both SuperCollider and hardware, creating abrasive, jacking and disconcerting dancefloor music. Preorder from 28th March, released 15th April.
ALGOBABEZ have been blasting eardrums with incorrigibly industrial synth-driven algo-pop since 2016. Formed of Shelly Knotts and Joanne Armitage, they use SuperCollider to code and control patterns of weird, wonky, noisy, thumping, danceable music.
Joanne Armitage is a creative technologist and artist working with sound, physical computing, digital media and interaction design. Based at Leeds, her current practice-based research explores how digital sound can connect with the body through haptic feedback.
Shelly Knotts is a data musician currently based in Newcastle, UK. She performs live-coded and network music internationally, collaborating with computers and other humans. She is studying for a PhD in Live Computer Music at Durham University with a focus on collaboration in Network Music.
