GA Teach Laptop & New Music Ensemble
Thu., April 17, 8 p.m. 2014
From the venue:The Georgia Tech Laptop Orchestra & New Music Ensemble revels in the intersection between electronics and the live music experience. The ensemble employs a wide range of technological tricks advanced enough to make Kraftwerk blush. For this performance, six student-created pieces blur the lines between man and machine in remarkable ways, including music crafted through facial recognition technology, a video game that doubles as a platform for live improvisation, and a genetic algorithm with which both laptops and live instrumentalists can interact.
