Keynote: Distributed Jamming and Composition with Sonic Pi and Erlang

Sam Aaron
Creator of @Sonic_Pi, Live Coding Musician

What happens when Erlang, a language designed for distributed, concurrent and fault tolerant programs collides head first with Sonic Pi a live coding music system designed for creativity, expression and education? This highly interactive talk will continue the story of this unlikely union demonstrating the creative and expressive power of Erlang and how its core ideas and philosophy can be transformative for both education and the music industry in general.


By day, Sam Aaron is a mild-mannered Research Associate at the Cambridge University Digital Technology Group. By night, he’s a live coder who considers programming as performance and strongly believes in the importance of celebrating creativity within all aspects of programming.
