Offrandes pour le Japon / Offerings for Japan

April 1, 2011 from 8PM to 3AM
SAT, 1201, Boulevard Saint-Laurent

Open Call to all Laptop/iPhone Musicians in Montréal

Bring Your Own Laptop Orchestra

matralab (Hexagram Concordia) in collaboration with the SAT (Société des 
arts technologiques)
is organizing an artistic response to the disasters in Japan (see the 
website <http://matralab.hexagram.ca/tamuke/> for more info).
The event will take place this Friday at the SAT, 1201, Boulevard 
Saint-Laurent in Montréal.

Around midnight we would open the stage for all Laptop/iPhone musicians 
to come together
  and create a collective sound work, led and inspired by Eldad Tsabary, 
founder and director of the Concordia Laptop Orkestra (CLOrk).

Over the past weeks, *matra*lab (Concordia University) has collected 
some news audio footage from the disasters
with the goal of creating an audiowave representing the mayhem that 
occurred when the tsunami hit Japan.
We invite you to bring your laptop/iPhone and your own portable 
speakers/amplifiers !

Come latest at 11pm.

At the SAT, you will be able to download the audio files of the disaster 
from a local server.
Everyone is welcome to interpret, mashup, remix, livecode, or play back 
those materials with their software of preference.
We would prefer if you used MAINLY these materials.
At 11:45pm, Eldad Tsabary will give a short and simple intro into his 
laptop conducting technique,
so that the sounds coming from all of you can be coordinated in some way 
by visual signs.
At midnight, you will all go to the stage and perform together for 30 min.
Please feel free to forward this announcement to anyone who may be 
interested. And come yourself, of course.
And please sign-up by e-mail to japan.vigil at gmail.com 
<mailto:japan.vigil at gmail.com>just so we can estimate how large the 
BYOLaptop Orchestra will be.

Hoping to see you day after tomorrow !
Sandeep Bhagwati and Michal Seta
