  • Workshop: Composing and performing with a laptop orchestra

In this introductory workshop, led by founder and Creative Director of Female Laptop Orchestra, Nela Brown, we will cover strategies and techniques for composing and performing with a laptop orchestra/ electroacoustic ensemble. From coordinating musicians to deciding on repertoire, writing a performance ‘score’, rehearsing, performing and documenting the performance.

Musicians of all different levels/ styles are welcome. Please bring your tool of choice (laptop, acoustic/electric instrument, voice, etc.), a pair of headphones (large ones are preferred), software/ hardware (you are currently using to perform with) and any musical ideas you wish to explore. If you are just starting out and wish to learn more about processing your sound using digital tools, please bring your laptop (and your instrument, if you play one), as we will be covering some basic principles of performing live and processing audio in real-time using Bigwig studio software. At the end of the workshop we will do a short performance 🙂

This workshop is limited to 20 participants. Please book your place by emailing Elena Robles at: by Friday 22 June 2018.
