The Media Centre [i]
10 pm

Ultrasound is delighted to welcome back one of the most popular and widely acclaimed laptop performance duos of recent years. Slub performed to a rapturous audience in Huddersfield during the first Ultrasound Festival in 2002.

Slub sound emerges from slub software; melodic and chordal studies, generative experiments and beat processes. Process-based sonic improvisations; live generative music using hand crafted and live coded apps and scripts in networked synchrony. With roots in UK electronica and tech culture, slub build their own software environments for creating music in realtime. Only custom composition and DSP software is used. Everything you hear is formed by human minds.

For Ultrasound 2005 slub will improvise a loosely scored set of bytes, integers, floating point numbers and other structures using exciting and largely chaotic technologies that are too tedious to explain here. Their screens will be projected so that the audience are able to see their live software development process, which will not adhere to industry quality control standards and will not feature a rigorous testing framework. They will communicate using OSC over UDP and eyebrow gestures. The output will range from extra slow gabba, through intelligent ambient to acid blues glitch.

Slub have performed widely across Europe including Sonic Acts Amsterdam, Sonar Barcelona, Club Transmediale Berlin, leplacard London and Ultrasound Huddersfield.

Alex McLean is a member of slub, reading Arts Computing at Goldsmiths College, London and programmer for the state51 conspiracy. He co-organises the dorkbotlondon meetings of people doing strange things with electricity, helps run the runme.org software art repository, and is a founder member of TOPLAP, the Temporary Organisation for the Promotion of Live Algorithm Programming.

Adrian Ward is a member of slub, software artist and system administrator. He divides his time between commercial, academic and artistic practices and has been running his eclectic company Signwave from London for six years, using it as an excuse to do whatever he feels, whenever he likes. He is a member of TOPLAP, did Grade 4 on the trumpet, and likes weird electronic noises.
