Program Notes
This piece -- one of the original laptop orchestra pieces; Perry and Ge's first -- is an experiment in human controlled, but machine synchronized percussion ensemble performance. Various percussive sounds are temporally positioned by PLOrk members, and the piece gradually transitions from tuned bell timbres to drums as the texture and density grows.
