PLOrk, SLOrk, BLOrk.. MITLOrk! Come join us as part of MIT's first ever laptop orchestra. A laptop orchestra is an ensemble of computer musicians performing on digital instruments of their own design - an exciting new frontier of comtemporary music with much left to explore. This four-week course will start with an introduction to computer music, then quickly progress through instrument creation, arrangement, and rehearsal of an orchestral piece, to be performed at the end of IAP. Bring your own laptop; no previous experience necessary. Due to the ambitious nature of the program, attendance at all sessions is expected.
