Algorithms that Matter had been invited for the 3rd workshop on Humanising Algorithmic Listening, organised by Alice Eldridge and Paul Stapleton, and taking place at the University of Sussex. There will be video recordings of the presentations available at some point, and I also promised to contribute a blog post (hopefully in October). In the meantime, check out their website for the HAL project that has many connecting points with Almat’s topics. It was a very nice occasion which provided good opportunities to meet old and new friends and extend our network. I hope there will be a follow-up in some form.
ALMAT in collaboration with BEK and Notam Norway are hosting a workshop-in-exposition. Deadline 23 February.
Algorithmic double-piece ‘Traumcloud’ to feature in 17 Feb radio show by Justin Winkler and based on a project by Robert Desnos.

In January we moved into a great new studio space which will be called ‘Reagenz - Raum für künstlerische Experimente’ (space for artistic experiments).
