Darwin Laptop Orchestra (DLOrk) Workshop
Darwin Laptop Orchestra (DLOrk) will run a workshop on Saturday, 19 August 2017, 12:30 pm, Happy Yess, for Darwin Festival. DLOrk is a group established by Darwin Community Arts through its Frontline digital arts project. The workshop is open to anyone interested in collaboratively creating musical instruments, composing music and performing live on a laptop . No computer or music experience is necessary. DLOrk is inspired by the Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk), Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk) and other laptop orchestras around the world. It seeks to explore ways of making and sharing music using contemporary digital technologies that offer many possibilities for innovation and invention in music-making. An inclusive and community-based structure allows musicians of various backgrounds, training and skill levels to participate.
