OxLOrk on BBC Radio and at the Barbican

The Oxford Laptop Orchestra, which I co-founded, got off to a fast start with successful concerts at Oxford's Jaqueline du Pré Music Building and its historic Holywell Music Room. At our inaugural concert, I performed a piece I composed and coded--it's called Electric Fuzz--and there's a video of that performance you can watch online.

After our first concerts, local press and committed members helped generate buzz about our exciting new LOrkestra (here's an entertaining interview I did with colleague Dan Jeffries for that purpose on BBC Radio Oxford). On August 5th, 2013, OxLOrk made its London debut at the Barbican Centre as a featured ensemble on the fascinating "Hack the Barbican" series.
