I’m Ruben, an Italian developer/designer but from more than a decade living in Japan.
In my spare time, I create interactive and immersive art experiences, but since I discovered this awesome world of live coding and SonicPi a few weeks ago, I can’t stop trying new stuff and writing music
I have a few live sessions on my Youtube channel if you want to check them out… still learning though
I lived in Japan for four years, but a long time ago.
If things go to plan, I should be back in Japan for a short time in February.
Can I ask if you are part of the Algorave scene in Tokyo?
No. To be honest, I only found out about live coding and SonicPi a few weeks ago.
I tried contacting these people last time I was in Tokyo, but didn’t receive an answer: https://algorave.tokyo
Did you write in english or japanese? I think it’s probably still a small circle, not really sure.
I was surprised the other day, there was a guy talking about live coding music on a japanese radio (Renick Bell, he’s based in Tokyo but don’t know much https://www.j-wave.co.jp/original/innovationworld/globalopeninnovation/190809.html )
If I recall correctly, I wrote in both.
I’ll have a look at the link you post, thanks.
Ciao @RubenFro! Nice to meet you, I’m italian too but I still live in Italy. Live in Japan must be something really special, hope someday in the future to visit that (and others) country.
Hi Mattia, nice to meet you
It’s definitely a nice and interesting place… I have to say though, after so many years living here I’m just so used to it it doesn’t feel anymore special.
Instead, it’s Italy I find so beautiful and special every time I have the chance to visit (situazioni politiche permettendo, vorrei prima o poi tornare a vivere in Italia )
