Alexandra Cárdenas

Alexandra’s work focuses on the algorithmic behavior of music, and the exploration of musicality within code. She is a core member of the international algorave community and performs worldwide using the live coding platforms SuperCollider and TidalCycles. In 2017, she was the Chair of the International Live Coding Conference in Morelia, Mexico.

Alexandra studied composition at the Los Andes University in Bogotá, Columbia and later completed a Sound Studies and Sonic Arts Master’s Degree at Universität der Künste, Berlin. Besides her live-coded music works, she has composed contemporary pieces for orchestra, ensembles and soloists, and worked with theater companies in Mexico, Belgium and Germany.

At Loop, Alexandra will give a Workshop teaching the basics of Sonic Pi, an open-source program designed for live-coded music creation. She is also taking part in a collaborative live-coded algorave performance as part of the Loop Klubnacht at Tresor club on Saturday, April 25.
