[UPDATE] RECORDINGS available! TidalCycles Meetup #2: feat. CNDSD + Ivan Abreu, kindohm and MrReason - May 8/9

TidalCycles Meetup #2

**Update #2: VIDEOOOOOOOS!!!
This was quite an event - we had an incredible deep dive into CNDSD and kindohm's workflows and processes, got exposed to the direct educational value plus future connection library possibilities of Ivan Abreu's Tidal Visualisation work, and lastly the incredible workflow boundary blurring of MrReason's live looping tidal interface.

Mali and Ivan have worked extensively together and will be sharing the presentation slot for this meetup

Malitzin Cortes/CNDSD is an experimental musician and audiovisual artist. Embracing multiple disciplines and technologies in audiovisual practices, her work is developed between livecoding,
live cinema, animation, generative art and sound art.

For the meetup presentation, Mali will be discussing her:

"Tidal Process, drones and toxic patterns"

Iván Abreu is an artist and creative technologist who works and lives in Mexico city.

He explores the veracity and instrumental capacity of science and technology in art contexts, and the possible poetic and/or political value of the findings that emerge from these crossings, as a consequence through processes like visualization, interaction design, industrial design , software and web development, engineering and electronics, expanding the possibilities of drawing, graphics, digital media, photography, sound art, video, sculpture, and architectural and urban installation.

For the meetup presentation, Ivan will be demonstrating the "Tidal Pattern Visualizer"


@kindohm aka Mike Hodnick

Mike describes himself as "a programmer from Minneapolis, USA and uses Tidal to produce and perform music."

...Mike also chronically understates his contributions - he is an enormously influential tidalcycles educator, contributor, and performer with a decade-spanning multi-album back catalog of tidal controlled music which is a must-listen for aspiring live coders.

For the meetup presentation:

"I will show how I integrate Tidal with external hardware, including both input and output. I'll also show how I structure my Tidal code for use with hardware and for live performance."



@mrreason aka Thomas Grund
thgrund (Thomas Grund) · GitHub

Thomas is a Tidalist, Electric Guitarist and Software Engineer, working on his first music release - an EP built in TidalCycles and SuperCollider.

Thomas is the developer of the TidalLooper, which provides live sampling/looping possibilities in TidalCycles and will be diving into it's use in this Meetup Presentation, including:

  • installation
  • configuration
  • examples
  • minimal setup requirements (and more!)

For boundary pushing examples and experiments in tidalcycles/traditional instrumentation mashups, check his instagram:

Thanks for the opportunity to talk about the Tidal looper!


Thanks, that was fantastic!


Thanks for sharing that stuff @mrreason! I'm eager to start trying the looper with some hand-played content.

when's the next estuary jam?

@boastmodernist You can find any kind of announced event here:

Every estuary jam should be there and located to your timezone.

In addition to what @mrreason said, you can check out more info on this thread, including the room name and password and the latest changes in time slots:



Thanks for a delightful time and meetup, everyone who came! I learned so much and heard so many unique sounds.

Cleary already shared the recorded video links up above but I think they're worth another share down here. Thanks sfradkin for uploading these! (artist bios and descriptions will be added to the video)

Thanks a lot @RTylerMclaughlin ! I remembered that a chunk of my 'tidal can't count' presentation was a demo that I streamed separately to youtube. That's here:


It would be nice to splice them together somehow, in case someone has video editing skills and some spare time..
