Symposium on Laptop Ensembles and Orchestras (SLEO)

Apr 9, 2012


 
SLEO April 15-17 at LSU
 
The first ever Symposium on Laptop Ensembles and Orchestras (SLEO), an international workshop on music performance using mobile devices and laptop computers, will offer workshops for those wishing to learn about mobile and laptop ensembles, as well as peer-reviewed papers and panels to discuss the state-of-the-art and best practices of this exciting new genre of music performance and music technology.
 
The Symposium was created to address the critical needs of the burgeoning field of mobile ensembles. The objective is to consider best practices in the field, create standards for classification and archiving, and to build a community of practitioners who want this unique medium to grow and thrive.

SLEO is not an organization, nor is it professional society; it is a venue for discussion and community building whose focus is on establishing laptop ensembles as viable performing ensembles at universities and in the public sphere.
