Algorave embraces the alien sounds of raves from the past and introduces alien, futuristic rhythms and beats made through algorithm-aided processes. It’s up to the good people on the dance floor to help the musicians make sense of this unstable situation and do the real creative work making a great party. These days, nearly all electronic music is made using software with artificial barriers between the people creating the software algorithms and the people making the music. Using systems built for creating algorithmic music and visuals these barriers are broken down, and musicians are able to compose and work live, creating music through intricate processes. Algorithmic music is not a new idea but Algorave puts the focus on humans who make and dance to it instead of the musicians who create it. Algorave musicians don’t pretend their software is being creative, they take responsibility for the music they make, shaping it using whatever means they have.
