Huddersfield Experimental Laptop Orchestra


by Samuel Freeman 2008

This piece was composed in response to an invitation from Hewitt to appear with HELO at their first public performance, November 2008.

Comprising four instrumental roles and a score defining how the performance will start and end this is a work that requires players to improvise with the given structures.

Instrumental roles


Performance notes

Acoustic-instrument one and laptop-instrument two can be performed by the same player as they do not coincide. The part of laptop-instrument one should be performed by three or more players. The player of acoustic-instrument two should be able to see the screen of laptop-instrument two during the performance. All laptop-instruments each have local audio input and output, such as built-in microphone and small combo-amp.
