Liveware is a new performance duo comprised of Michael Century and Shawn Lawson, both Professors in the Rensselaer Arts Department. The name Liveware plays off a slang term that denotes the “human operator” in computer systems. Lawson is an expert practitioner of “live-coding” using graphics languages he developed himself. Century performs on piano and accordion, and uses software he developed allowing live manipulations.
