NMC Laptop Orchestra Project – Premiere Performance

Saturday, April 16, 2011, 7:30 pm
William A. Kerr Foundation
21 O’Fallon St., St. Louis, MO 63102

An orchestra of laptop performers join together to present a multidimensional texture of sound layers. Individual performers distributed throughout the perfor- mance space explore spatial and antiphonal possibilities in originally created site-specific sound works. Lighting and projected video will enhance the multi-faceted environment. The concert features community members as laptop performers and soloists and is organized by the NMC and Jim Hegarty.

A demonstration workshop will also be held in the music technology studios, at St. Louis Community College at Forest Park in The Mildred Bastian Center, room T-165 (the rehearsal room under the main theatre) on Thursday, April 14, 2011 at 7:30 pm. The workshop is free and open to the public, and there will be free software distribution.
