Software concept, design, and programming by Michael Edwards.

Sean Reed

Thanks to Sean Reed, who was responsible for documenting and testing the software prior to release.


The documentation, testing, and release of slippery chicken was made possible by a grant from the UK Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) [grant number AH/J004529/1]. Work on slippery chicken in 2004/5 was supported by an AHRC Small Grant in the Creative and Performing Arts.


Many thanks to Johannes Goebel, former director of the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics. In 2000 and 2001 Michael Edwards was awarded ZKM Guest Artist stipends to work on this project. The bulk of the design and programming was completed for the main algorithmic system of slippery chicken during this time.

Rick Taube

Many thanks to Rick Taube for allowing his software Common Music to be packaged with slippery chicken, and for some core routines to be included.

Timothy Donaldsdon

Thanks to Tim for the website design and logo.

Russell Ovans

Gratitude must also be extended to Russell Ovans for providing advice and feedback on the project, particularly in the area of software testing.
