Recently I founded the Lancaster Laptop Orchestra group with a view to bringing attention to computer music and live coding art forms in the North West region of the UK. The usual participation in these types of groups are by experienced coders and often predominantly male dominated with regard to gender balance. I have chosen to approach this project as being an encouraging platform for musicians/composers/sound-artists to learn about coding and for coders to learn about music and audio related matters. We will be bringing new sounds and performances across the region to an unsuspecting general audience. With the very intersting core group members we have, I'm really looking forward to the development and outcomes as we go forward.
As things develop with this exciting project I will update here.
