The Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk) presents Cat's Cradle, a collection of works for electronic music ensemble that explore how musicians can interact with each other. Bora Yoon's piece turns the stage into a network of strings that evokes the children's game cat's cradle, while performers weave in and out of the pattern and influence the sound of a giant collective instrument. Gudmundur Stein Gunnarsson's "8 Light Pieces for Pauline Oliveros" coordinate the actions of the performers through animated notation, allowing intricate and irrational rhythmic patterns to emerge that traditional notation would be unable to express. Lola Constantino's Ukelear Power transforms a chorus of live acoustic ukuleles into a bionic monster of sound. The concert is free and open to the public - join us for an adventure in sound!
