On September 9, 2011, I will present “Improvisation as Tool and Intention: Organizational Practices in Laptop Orchestras and Their Effect on Personal Music Approaches” at the Guelph Jazz Festival Colloquium in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. The panel is called “Improvising Communities: Telematics and Technology” and will also include Michael Kaler from York University and Jason Robinson from Amherst College.
On October 29, 2011, Nick Hwang, J. Corey Knoll, and I will present a paper/performance on GUA at the Electroacoustic Barn Dance at University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA.. GUA is a laptop based instrument that was developed at LSU, and has been used extensively by the LOLs as well as Nick, Corey, and I. Nick has posted more info on GUA on his website.
I am also expecting to have performances of electroacoustic pieces in Baton Rouge, LA and Austin, TX. I will post more info on those as the details are confirmed.
