Hi, welcome to the LOSS Livecode festival website. We hope you can join us for some livecoding in July.

We’ve got livecoding artists and researchers coming to Sheffield from around Europe and beyond to create a weekend of presentations and live music and video. It will all start with a workshop, even if you have never livecoded before, this will be your opportunity to start.

To see what’s happening, see the schedule, and for a map of venues where things are happening see the travel page.

If you’re wondering what live coding is, perhaps it would help to say “describing art while it is being made, in order to make it” or “on-the-fly computer programming”. Well perhaps we will come up with a better definition during the conference, but for now perhaps the videos below will make things clearer…
