What does computation sound like, and how can computational processing be integrated into live-coding practice along with code? This article gives insights into three years of artistic research and performance practice with Betablocker, an imaginary central processing unit architecture, specifically designed and implemented for live-coding purposes. It covers the themes of algorithmic composition, sound generation, genetic programming, and autonomous coding in the light of self-manipulating code and artistic research practice.
