Mark Fell is a Rotherham-based electronic musician, multidisciplinary artist and producer whose work has persistently challenged the boundaries between dance music and academic computer music practices. His new book ‘Structure and Synthesis: The Anatomy of Practice’ will be released in March 2022.
During the pandemic lockdown, Mark and Rian built a working prototype Max/MSP patch for remote collaboration.

For Algorithmic Art Assembly, they will create a second iteration, built upon their framework.
