Alex McLean and Nick Collins are legends of the Live Coding scene, a geekfest of performance virtuosity in which music is made by writing the code that makes the music live on stage. It would be no surprise if Live Coding does not make it to Top of the Pops any time soon, if there is never to be a Steve Vai of the Live Coding world. I’m not even sure if I’m that into what comes out.

It doesn’t matter. It is seriously interesting. The Chordpunch label is a new venture of theirs, releasing music that is made using one or another generative process, and features luminaries such as Yee-King and Lars from Mars.
