Abstract or Description:

BITLIP focuses on creating musical, listenable sounds that people can dance too. Coming from a background in both jazz and cut-and-paste sampling he tries to combine the controlled spontaneity of musical improvisation with the textural eeriness of found sounds. His influences are quite wide, ranging from minimalist techno, classic rap, Steve Reich, Alice Coltrane’s spiritual music, Bach and Schoenberg, funk, jazz, and bluegrass to noise. Many of his compositions start life as livecoded adaptations of contemporary songs and end as bass-heavy, unfamiliar, cross-genre compositions with a focus on live energy and drama to keep people on their toes.
BITLIP uses the livecoding platform TidalCycles for sequencing and patterning his sounds and his own fork of the “SuperDirt” SuperCollider system for Tidal. He is a firm believer in the community of open source sharing built around livecoding and posts all his performance and practice code on his github at
