Line up:

Panda Zooicide

Panda Zooicide (NL/MX/USA/DE)

Panda Zooicide is an underground phenomenon and unique hip-hop experience, where hilarious and virtuosic raps are backed by live-coded beats; 8-bit bangers being spontaneously coded in Supercollider. Panda Zooicide is based in Amsterdam, but it’s members hail from USA, Mexico, and Germany. Hip-hop provides the backbone of the groups' work, but elements of classical, jazz, indie rock, funk and techno keep the listeners on their toes, never knowing what to expect next. Catchy hooks, robot choreography, Nintendo beats, comedic interludes and sensual vocoder melodies make for an unforgettable live show.

What is Live Coding?

At live coding events, also known as Algoraves, music and visuals are coded live. The DJ and VJ are coders who adjust rhythm, pitch and visuals real time by changing lines of their code and writing algorithmic compositions. Through use of large screen projections all code is visible to the audience, making the audience a part of the experience.
