So early this month I had the opportunity to attend the Symposium on Laptop Ensembles and Orchestras SLEO at LSU in Baton Rouge Louisiana.

I was there to listen to a performance of Human Shredders played by the Laptop Orchestra of Louisiana and also to present my own personal paper *Notational Approaches for Laptop Ensembles *and a HELOpg poster as well.

You can download the HELOpg Paper and the Notational Approaches for a Laptop Ensemble Paper and the presentation is also available online.

Finally as part of the Symposium I had the opportunity to appear on a pannel entitled Play Something Crazy…Now: Improvisation as a Tool in Composing for Laptop Orchestras Jeff Albert, chair which was very interesting.
