Algorave: Music Hack Day India 2019Written on December 5th, 2019 by Abhinay Khoparzi
Hot on the heels of upcoming performances in Pune, Algorave India in collaboration with Music Tech India brings you an algorave at another unique venue in Mumbai. As part of the Music Hack Day India 2019, we are organising a Algorave at Studio CAMP.

Algoraves are events centered around performers/artists who use various creative coding technologies to create music and visuals. Artists present their programming code in full view of the audience, while it is manipulated live to produce sounds and visions to bend minds and jiggle behinds.
