Meet Lil Gharsa, the young artist who specializes in creating music with code. This brilliant artist turns a few lines of code into sound waves which generates a rhyme flow creating music.
We dive into his journey with Live Coding, and the Algorave world as a whole, in the interview below. Ahead of that, we’ve got his brand-new single “Bang” in all its lushy goodness. But first, let’s dip our own toes in a little. What exactly is “Live Coding” and how does it work?
Live Coding is the use of software development approach in the pursuit of producing music. For some context, 97% of the new electronic music you hear out there is produced using a few select Digital Audio Workstations (aka DAWs): Ableton, Logic, maybe some Fruity Loops. The power of these DAWs is that you can use the extraordinarily complex user interface to get extremely granular in how the sounds are morphed and edited.
How does this compare the Live Coding? Well, if you think of starting a new song from scratch using one of the above DAWs, it’s fairly accurate to think of it as a wide-open canvas. For Live Coding, though, the accurate way to think about it is to consider a new song as being a lined piece of notebook paper.
As reported, Lil Gharsa developed his passion for music and code in the quarantine of 2020, and like a true innovator in music, he decided to combine them. Thus, kickstarting his career.
