    Never heard of this! What a great idea!
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    Re: Laptop orchestras from around the world

    I have a hard time relating what I heard here to what I know is music. I listened to most of the sound and video clips and heard mostly sound experimentation and some visualization as well. I did not hear anything that I would call music. I would call it sound art but not music. There was no compositional technigue, no melodic development. There was some rhythmic cadence but all seemed to be chaotic and non-directional.

    I don't think you can call them laptop orchestras. Laptop sound art is more fitting. If this is the direction music is going, I'll stick with the 3 B's.
