Bellacode: localized textual interfaces for live coding music

  • 1. McMaster University
  • 2. Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México


In May 2018, the collective RGGTRN presented a series of live coding workshops focused on the development of localized mini live coding languages, targeting the underlying affordances of TidalCycles via the Estuary web-based environment. This paper recounts the experience of those workshops, including interpretation of the live coding esolangs La Calle and Sucixxx created during the workshops. This paper ends with a brief analysis of an anonymous survey deployed during the workshops and a brief discussion of future work. On the basis of this account, we suggest localization as an aspect to be further explored in live coding practice.
