The LAG laptop quartet, a group of composers and musicians from Mills College in Oakland, Calif., will perform a concert of audio/visual network music simultaneously from MSU, Mills College and the United Kingdom. Each piece will be performed live via sending network messages over the Internet.
The concert will feature live-coding, game-like systems, chaotic feedback, ethereal harmonies, and more. The music of LAG laptop quartet is derived from experimentalism, the fusion or games and art, network collaboration, and using computers as a means of creating art that would otherwise be impossible. LAG member Cole Ingraham will be at MSU for the performance and Curtis McKinney will perform with the quarter in the U.K.
LAG will also team up with MSU's Electric Monster Laptop Ensemble for a special large group collaboration.
"From across 3 different time zones comes a performance which knows no bounds," said Hsiao-Lan Wang, MSU music professor and director of the Electric Monster Laptop Ensemble.
Concert admission is free admission. Donations will be gladly accepted but are not required.
The concert is sponsored by the Music Technology Program at MSU's Department of Music. For more information, contact Wang at 994-5743.
