"The History and Evolution of the Laptop Orchestra"

The orchestra is plugged in, sound checked, and code debugged (mostly).

For the first time in three years, The Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk) returns to Bing Concert Hall. You are warmly invited to an evening of new musical works at the intersections of humans, computers, hemispherical speaker arrays, new instruments, and novel sonic spaces.

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

This event is free and open to the public. No reservation or tickets needed (just walk in).
Come one, come all!
