We live in an age where the limits of technology are almost nonexistent. The combination of the constant progression of electronic devices and the expanding creativity of human minds has presented our generation with an endless amount of opportunity to innovate and form new ideas. The people of the Laptop Orchestra of Arizona State (LOrkAS) fit into the "innovative" category, without a doubt.
Although LOrkAS isn't the first of its kind, it was until recently, the first student-only laptop orchestra. Without any classes offered and a lack of funding, LOrkAS members have been forced to think outside the box and push the boundaries of "what can be done" while using the laptop as an ensemble instrument. Here, they go in depth and talk about their performance at the Emerge Festival, as well as the importance of experimental music and sonic art performance.
