Cyber Orchestra Explores Laptop Performance

The Moscow Laptop Cyber Orchestra, or CybOrk, is a collective dedicated to exploring and expanding the possibilities of live interaction between musicians using a variety of electronic systems and controllers. Having just celebrated its first anniversary, the project features a core group of regular performers, with additional collaborators and guest contributors frequently getting involved.

Although the performers do use a lot of pre-sequenced/recorded material, the live performances are more interactive and dynamic than the average laptop concert. In fact, the performance is treated like a sort of philharmonic cyber-jam – live sessions are recorded acoustically, as if each musician was playing a traditional instrument within an orchestra. Samples of their performances are available in mp3 format on the Cyber Orchestra website.
