Over today I have been helping on the ChucK manual sprint, a consorted effort to bring the ChucK documentation upto date.

Its always a challenge with a language still under development, to keep the documentation unto date.

And as is always the case I have picked up some more cool ChucK tricks.

You can find the manual (still under construction) here.

This summer the Huddersfield Experimental Laptop Orchestra (HELO) and the inclusive improv performed as part of the Sound and Music Leeds Expo.

Manchester based film maker Nathan Rae accompanied the groups and shot the camera work that is used within this documentary.

This coming Friday (13th November) I am performing as part of HELO.pg, the post grad part of the Huddersfield Experimental Laptop Orchestra in its first live performance of the current academic year.

You can find out more about the ANY WHICH WAY project here.

And more about HELO.pg here.

Should be a great gig so if you around Hudds why not come check it out.

Monday the 9th of November I have the opportunity to perform ‘Dense’ as part of miniWofS.

miniWofS is the one day version of the Week of Speakers project organised by the inclusive improv collective.

You can find out more about miniWofS here.

‘Dense’ is a solo laptop piece performed using ChucK code and just the laptop keyboard and mouse. Performed using live coding techniques ‘Dense’ has been created for miniWofS.

Playing another gig so if your in the manchester area this is unmissable.

Rodrigo Constanzo (piano) with Scott Hewitt (live sampling)

Will be live sampling, processing, coding and general laptop-ing.

All in support of….
