The Laptop Orchestra at UI
The Laptop Orchestra of the University of Iowa (LOUi) is an experimental new music ensemble that promotes the intersection of acoustic and electronic music, of traditional or classical instruments with laptops, guitar pedals, and other electronic devices. Students create their own repertoire and develop improvisation skills. The ensemble is open to anyone at the University with background in music, and interest in programming or electronic music. The ensemble will engage in at least one performance per semester.
