Female Laptop Orchestra Research Output

As musicians and artists, in the context of FLO, we are interested in exploring new collaborative music making frameworks and systems, designing new ways of composing and performing using traditional instruments, hardware and software, and finding new ways of connecting with female performers and audiences from different musical backgrounds, cultures and continents 🙂

Most of Female Laptop Orchestra ‘Research Output’ is of the ‘Non-textual form › Performance’ kind, the full list of which can be found below:

Female Laptop Orchestra members’ individual research output

As individual researchers, working at the intersection of music, art, computer science and engineering, we also present our work at conferences and symposiums and publish it as part of journals and book chapters.

Check out what some of the FLO folks have been up below!

Magdalena Chudy’s research has been focused on player-dependent aspects of musical timbre, with a particular interest in exploring the relationship between instrumental gesture, tone quality and perception in classical cello performance.

PhD thesis, Centre for Digital Music, School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Queen Mary University of London, UK. Published online 5 Jan 2017. [pdf]

Anna Xambó’s research focuses on interactive real-time systems for music looking at live coding and generative computer music, collaborative and participatory interfaces, and real-time MIR. She has a special interest in improving the underrepresentation of women in music technology.
