Be transported inside the software world of a mainframe computer where interaction between programs good and malicious is the only way to get back out. Behind the smoke and mirrors, watch out for the bits and bytes.

Launched at the 2012 Edinburgh International Science Festival, LateLab is a creative, social and participatory space for adults where they can make, do and interact with art, science and technology.
Come to LateLab to take part in genuine experiments and get hands on with some fascinating stuff. With talks, performances, films, table top science and creative catering, no two LateLabs are ever the same.
LateLab | Dialogues
Michael Edwards is an Edinburgh-based composer, performer, and software developer. For this concert he presents 'hyperboles', a series of pieces that allow flautist Anne La Berge to tweak the algorithmic parameters that are used to generate the work's score.
This open invitation enables the musician to get involved in the compositional process. Anne delicately spins microtonal textures and melodies, and a wholly unique array of powerfully percussive flute effects, all are combined with electronic processing in this guided improvisation.
LateLab | PechaKucha
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide.
PechaKucha is curated in Edinburgh by Gordon Duffy, Principal of architecture practice Studio DuB. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds.
Cryptic Nights | Articulations
Artist and musician Craig Ritchie Allan (Numbercult) orchestrates a synchronized ballet of geometry and sound. Inspired by the work of Kandinsky, Fischinger, Stockhausen and Xenakis, Ritchie Allan uses bespoke generative real time animation to compose and conduct with colour.
Articulations is a captivating performance in which music and visual art are truly united; a novel and engaging experience that saturates the senses and evokes a synaesthetic spectrum of emotion.
LateLab | Encounters
Ginsberg is a new desktop tool and associated app for smartphone and tablet that helps users understand themselves better by tracking their mood and activity. It was developed by the Scottish Government in partnership with NHS 24 and New Media Scotland's Alt-w Fund.
Host Geoff Huggins will introduce author Matt Haig, designer Kate Ho and mindfulness technologist Rohan Gunatillake. You'll also experience the work of Alt-w Fund supported artists Gavin Inglis & Stephen Redman, Gary Martin and the Small Society Lab.
Alt-w | MUD
18th April to 3rd May 2015, Thurs to Sun, 12-6pm.
Embassy, Broughton Street Lane, Edinburgh EH1 3LY
MUD∞ engages a digital neo-medievalist application of materials, drawing on a ritualistic treatment of the art object as relic, or sentient person-object, to explore the contemporary political economy of the image as value-form and an index of social status.
