A few weeks ago I had the joy of presenting a short paper on Praxis LIVE at the International Conference on Live Coding at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. While acting as an introduction to Praxis LIVE, the paper covered a few of the new features in v3 (finally released last week!).
One of the highlights of the conference for me was Andrew Sorensen’s keynote on The Art and Science of Livecoding. Andrew’s Extempore programming environment and his thoughts on cyber-physical programming have partly influenced recent developments in Praxis LIVE (I say “partly” because this was already the direction of flow! 🙂 ) As someone long interested in the interactions between arts, science and technology, it was great to see examples of these ideas in use in fields like physics and astronomy as well as audio and video.
