Writing code to make music to drink beer to
Live coding is the changing of rules while they are followed. You can do it without computers, but in general it involves one or more programmers writing code on the fly, to make live music or video for a watching or dancing audience. Alternatively, live coding can be a participatory experience, possibly in collaboration with others.

There's an active live coding community, spawning a manifesto, documentary and some bands, attracting some commentary, and the odd news feature. A number of live coding systems are freely available, including some borderline esoteric visual and game-like programming languages.
