2019: A SLOrk Odyssey — A Concert of New Frontiers

Saturday, June 8, 2019 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
Bing Concert Hall


The Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk) will present new works for the full ensemble — music made at the intersection 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 very first laptop opera ("laptopera"), and more.

Works and performances by: Jack Atherton | Hassan Estakhrian | Elena Georgieva | Anne Hege Hillary Hermawan | Kunwoo Kim | Trijeet Mukhopadhyay | Camille Noufi Mark Sabini | Ryan Smith | Cara Turnbull | Ge Wang | Matt Wright 

Note: There will be a pre-concert talk by director Ge Wang on the topic of designing instruments for laptop orchestra starting at 6:45 p.m.
