Geek Alert

How geeky (or is it nerdy) is this?

The Princeton Laptop Orchestra, or PLORK - an orchestra made up entirely of people playing electronic minimalism on their laptops.

The Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk) is a new ensemble of 15 laptop'ers, each seated on a pillow with a 6-channel hemispherical speaker and a variety of control devices. This premiere performance will include works by Paul Lansky, Brad Garton, Curtis Bahn and Tomie Hahn, Dan Trueman, Scott Smallwood, Seth Cluett, Perry Cook and Ge Wang, with special guest performances by renowned tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain, accordion legend Pauline Oliveros, and the hot percussion quartet So Percussion (who will be processing Hussain in real-time).
