The Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk) will present new works for the full ensemble in Bing Concert Hall on Saturday, June 8th. You are warmly invited to an evening of music made at the intersections of humans, computers, hemispherical speaker arrays, new instruments, and novel musical spaces. This year, SLOrk will explore a number of new frontiers, including computer-mediated paper puppetry, SLOrk musical lanterns (slanterns), a computer music assimilation of Star Trek, a musical journey in VR, a sonic contemplation of plastic in our world, soundscapes in feedback, the world premiere of the very first laptop opera (laptopera), and more.

There will be a pre-concert talk by director Ge Wang about designing instruments for the laptop orchestra, starting at 6:45pm. The concert will begin at 7:30pm.
