Slork Laptops

The Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk) will celebrate the conclusion of its 2008-09 season with a full-scale laptop orchestra concert of all new works at 8 p.m. Thursday, June 4, in Dinkelspiel Auditorium. Admission is free.

SLOrk, a large-scale, computer-mediated ensemble that explores cutting-edge technology with conventional musical contexts, was founded last year by Ge Wang, assistant professor of music and cofounder of Sonic Mule. The ensemble, operating out of the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics, comprises more than 20 laptops, human performers, controllers and custom multi-channel speaker arrays (made from IKEA salad bowls).
