Swansea Laptop Orchestra presents an evening of music driven by technology at the Loft, Bridge Street, Galway.
This is a free event, come and mix and see how the Swansea Laptop Orchestra use hacked game controllers, laptops and sensors to create and perform experimental, classical, electroacoustic and electronic music. Controllers are used to track the performers’ gestures and theatrical movements, bringing a unique physicality to electronic music while also creating a symbiotic audio-visual experience.
The Swansea Laptop Orchestra (Swanlork) was founded by Dr. Jenn Kirby in 2015 with founding members Simon Kilshaw and Dr. Paul Hazel. Since its foundation Swanlork have performed in many venues and at festivals around South Wales and the UK. They have also featured on the BBC Radio 3 Exposure programme and BBC Radio Cymru.
