Oulipop at live.code.festival 2013, Karlsruhe

24 April 2013

We had a gig at live.code.festival in Karlsruhe.

From the program:

2 Performers, 1 laptop, 20 minutes. Manipulating texts according to Oulipo rules. Metalevel live-coding. Each keystroke triggers a process that translates the current text’s characters into a set of commands for a fictional CPU. Treated as a sound signal, the ever-changing output of that CPU is played back, and thereby influences the performers’ decisions on how to further alter the text. Over the course of the performance, an initially meaningful text turns into nonsense before it eventually settles into a new and often surprising semantical meaning.
