On Thursday 25th August at 8.30pm, the Irish Composers' Collective will present the launch of the Dublin Laptop Orchestra in the Kevin Barry Room, National Concert Hall.
Established in early 2011 by Alex Dowling and Dan Trueman, the Dublin Laptop Orchestra makes music with laptops, hands, golf controllers, hemispherical speakers, and anything else that's lying around. The DLO aims to bring theatricality and 'physical presence' into electronic music performance by creating software instruments that require movement and skill from the performers and encourage interaction and improvisation.
In collaboration with the Dublin Laptop Orchestra, the Irish Composers' Collective will present six new works, unlike anything you've ever seen before.
Alex Dowling – Foxhunters
Bryan Dunphy – 01
Francis Heery – Spool
Piaras Hoban – Netwerkwerk
Donal MacErlaine – Atma
Dennis Wyers – Bang-cruncH
