“In recent years Richard Hoadley has composed using his own bespoke systems implementing physical interfaces and algorithmic software which together generate original compositions in real-time as a feature of the performance. He has developed a number of devices including the ‘Gaggle’ which investigate and facilitate physical interactions with musically expressive algorithms for installations, performances (including dance) and therapeutic environments. In ‘Calder’s Violin’ (2011-12) he included methods for the live presentation of algorithmically generated notation and augmented scores, an approach developed further in ‘The Fluxus Tree’ (2012), ‘Three Streams’ and ‘Quantum Canticorum’ (2013) in which physical movement generates music notation which is then performed live by an instrumentalist. He is affiliated with the Digital Performance Laboratory at Anglia Ruskin University. “
