Live coding is a way to make live music and visuals that allow us to communicate and interact directly with algorithms. Contrary to what you may think, coding skills are not necessary for using live coding tools (it can always help, though).
One of the most popular languages in live coding is Tidal Cycles, a free software application, that allows us to instantly create and modify musical patterns using only a few lines of code.
