“Generative music" is understood as music in which the composer establishes prefixed sound materials and rules that govern its evolution over time. This compositional technique can be considered an algorithmic approach to music, which puts it in direct relation with computer science.

This City and Science Biennial presents very diverse cases of generative music, from the work of Josep Maria Mestres Quadreny, a pioneer of computational music on an international level, to experimentation with live code writing.

The Biennial's science night hosts an algorave. An "algorave" is a practice that combines live coding, i.e. the writing and editing of computer code for the generation of live electronic music and digital visuals, with club music. Algorithms and musical climaxes, open source knowledge and the irrepressible movement of bodies coincide in this radically open, communal and festive practice.
