Participate with your own code!
During PAF Kolektiv will be based in the Atrium where the live coding laboratory will be located. After the opening concert the artists will develop and adjust non-stop running sound and image codes in the forms of an open network installation, a workshop and a laboratory. Occasional sessions, workshops and laboratory experiments will also take place.
Kolektiv is an open group of artists working in the realm of algorithmic visuals and electronic music who follow in the tradition of live coding, an art form based on the artist writing a code for their performance in real time, creating instruments generating sound or image right in front of the audience.
The occasional members of the group are Michal Cáb, GND, Kryštof Pešek, Jáchym Pešek, Jiří Rouš, Georgij Bagdasarov, Martin Blažíček, Petr Zábrodský, Alexandra Timpau, Jonáš Svatoš, Erik Bartoš and Andrej Boleslavský. However, with each performance the group's composition varies featuring between four up to twelve performers.http://k-o-l-e-k-t-i-v.github.io/
At PAF, Kolektiv will perform not only at full strenght, but will also give workshop of live coding which can be attended by anyone with laptop and audio or visual code in software their liking. (Recommended languages: SuperCollider, PureData, Fluxus, VVVV, Quartz Composer.)

There is no open call:
the workshop simply will take place Friday 5th and Saturday 6th of December always from 5:30 pm in Atrium at Konvikt.
Thanks to such high number of present artists – lectors, there is a space for very individual approach according to skill level and selected programming language. The number of workshop participants is not limited.
Beginners will be trained in the basics, advanced will be advanced further. You can just observe and spy, but if you want to participate actively, please bring your own laptop with at least one of the following software installed: PureData, SuperCollider, QuarzComposer, alternatively C, Fluxus of Processing.
The outcome of the workshop is playing together with participants in the "Live coding lab" installation – be it image, sound, or both.
EXHIBITION LIVE CODING LAB
On Thursday, the 4th of December, there will be a vernissage of the Live coding lab exhibition and a Live coding AV performance by Kolektiv. The projections will take place over two days and will be shown at the same time as an exhibition which originates through connecting individual projections and current visitors.
