Notes

This article explores the intersection of live coding and choreography, discussing the "practice as research" project Hacking Choreography. It examines the use of computer programming languages within dance scores, the creation of scores in real time, and the transparency of these scores to the audience during performance. Four pieces created by the author are discussed in terms of these elements and compared to live-coding practices for computer music. Through this, not only does live coding emerge as a performance practice related to sound or visuals, but it also continues its trajectory as a transdisciplinary approach to live performance events.
