Created by Eldad Tsabary in 2010, Concordia Laptop Orchestra (CLOrk) is a versatile ensemble of laptopists and other sound makers from the Electroacoustic Studies program at Concordia’s Department of Music. The ensemble explores diverse forms of collective music making, improvisation, and communication approaches; and has years of experience in networked and telematic performances, in interdisciplinary performance, and in developing strategies for large ensemble collective improvisation.
