Greetings fellow ChucKians!  For those in the SF Bay Area...
(much ChucK-mediated mayhem will be afoot!)

     2019: A SLOrk Odyssey — A Concert of New Frontiers

The Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk) will present new works for the 
full ensemble in Bing Concert Hall on Saturday, June 8th. You are warmly 
invited to an evening of music made at the intersection of humans, 
computers, hemispherical speaker arrays, new instruments, and novel 
musical spaces. This year, SLOrk will explore a number of new frontiers, 
including computer-mediated paper puppetry, SLOrk musical lanterns 
(slanterns), a computer music assimilation of Star Trek, a musical 
journey in VR, a sonic contemplation of plastic in our world, 
soundscapes in feedback, the very first laptop opera (laptopera), and more.

There will be a pre-concert talk by director Ge Wang on the topic of 
designing instruments for laptop orchestra, starting at 6:45pm. The 
concert will begin at 7:30pm.

This event is FREE and OPEN to all.
