This paper introduces our collective work ``Patterns in Between Intelligences'', a performance piece that builds an artistic practice between live coding sounds and coding through dance, mediated and shaped through e-textile sensors. This creates a networked system of which both live coded processes and human bodies are part. The paper describes in detail the implementations of technology used in the prototype performance performed at No Bounds Festival in Sheffield UK, October 2022, as well as discussions and concerns the team had related to the use of AI technology on stage. The paper concludes with a narrative reflection on the Sheffield performance, and reflections on it.
