Alex McLean is a live coder, software artist and researcher based in Sheffield UK. He is one third of the live coding group Slub, getting crowds to dance to algorithms at festivals across Europe, releasing solo music as Yaxu through the Computer Club label. He promotes anthropocentric technology and post-autonomous algorithmic music as co-founder of the ChordPunch record label, of event promoters
Algorave, live streamers Eulerroom, the TOPLAP live coding network, and the independent research organisation FoAM Kernow. His Tidal live coding environment has a vibrant free, open source community, in part thanks to its first proper public release during Alex's residency at Hangar.
