TOPLAP Barcelona is a collective that practices and promotes live coding as a sound and visual creation technique, generating a technological appropriation through the use and development of free and open software focused on generating its own relationships and discourses.

TOPLAP Barcelona is a meeting place for the community of livecoders where to research, play live and develop projects around live coding.

The activities organized by the collective are: workshops, talks, monthly sessions of live coding from scratch, periodic meetings with the research community, as well as algoraves.

For TOPLAP live coding is a form of scenic art and a creativity technique focused on real-time writing of source code and the use of interactive programming, is a new direction in electronic music, is improvising and formalizing in public. The live coders expose and modify in real time the software generating music and / or images, while the manipulation of the code is projected to allow viewing process. Live coding works in all musical genres, and by the elements that compose it – art, science and technology – it also configures a social and political discourse.
