Shift-Enter is a live coding and electroacoustic ensemble from Aberdeen, Scotland, which was founded in 2015 with its initial members consisting of PhD and MMus Sonic Art students from Aberdeen University. Since 2017, Shift-Enter expanded its membership to include undergraduate music students.
The group makes use of audio technology to create and perform new and experimental musical work. Particularly, it uses TidalCycle (or Tidal for short), a programming language for live coding patterns, which allows you to make musical patterns with text, describing sequences and ways of transforming and combining them, exploring complex interactions between simple parts. Shift-Enter has regularly been playing at experimental music festivals such as Sound and sonADA.
