Algo-Rhythms Workshop: Hydra – Olivia Jack

Live Coding Visuals with Hydra

A special workshop, led by Hydra’s creator Olivia Jack, explores this flexible system to experiment with recursive and chaotic systems – fractals, fluid simulations, and tessellations – as elements of live performance.

Please note! There are 20 combitickets for the worskhop that also give access to the evening programme.

Hydra is a platform for live coding visuals in Javascript, in which each connected browser window can be used as a node of a modular and distributed video synthesizer. Inspired by analog modular synthesizers, these tools are an exploration into using streaming over the web for routing video sources and outputs in realtime. Multiple visual sources (oscillators, cameras, application windows, other connected windows) can be transformed, modulated, and composited via combining sequences of functions.
