  • glicol

    Graph-oriented live coding language and music/audio DSP library written in Rust

  • Probably because last week was the Algorave 10th birthday, an iconic event for music live coding, and we had a 24-hour performance stream:

    https://ten.algorave.com/

    So here another language I used for that performance:

    Glicol: Graph-oriented live coding language and audio DSP library written in Rust for making music in browsers

  • Sonic Pi

    Code. Music. Live.

  • This was superseded by Sonic Pi https://sonic-pi.net/.

    The author has said that if he would do it in Erlang if he was starting again now.

    Here's a talk with him and the late Joe Armstrong.

  • scheme-for-max

    Max/MSP external for scripting and live coding Max with s7 Scheme Lisp

  • Hi, if you're interested in Overtone, you might be interested in my projects as well, Scheme for Max and Scheme for Pure Data. They use s7 Scheme, a very clojurish Scheme implementation designed for computer music needs by Bill Schottstaedt at CCRMA, of Common Lisp Music fame. Part of my motivation for creating it was to overcome some of what I perceived as limitations in options such as Overtone and Pink. https://github.com/iainctduncan/scheme-for-max

    Unfortunately Overtone is not really active anymore, the its replacement loses the lisp!

    Other interesting Scheme/Lisp based systems in similar areas are Extempore (formerly impromptu), Nyquist (by Dannenburg, another godfather of the field), and Common Music.

  • Tidal

    Pattern language

  • Another interesting tool in this space is called http://tidalcycles.org/

    It's written in Haskell, and seems to do something very interesting with the way to define looping patterns.
