poster with image of a modular electronic music instrument with many buttons in a variety of colors: white, black, green, yellow, orange, and blue. Includes text that reads "PLORK - The Princeton Laptop Orchestra: Destiny Clock on Thursday, March 23 at 8PM in Taplin Auditorium. Free Concert."

The Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk) presents Destiny Clock, a show that explores new music for new instruments. The concert will feature Lola Constantino’s new piece for wind ensemble with electronic manipulation using gestural control. Claire Hu and Yue Qiaio combine forces to create a rhythmic and textural tour-de-force using modular synthesizer and live percussion sounds spatialized around the hall. Jeff Snyder’s new piece is a contemplative meditation for a quartet of Electrobasses, an instrument designed in his lab on campus. Finally, PLOrk has created an improvisational piece based around CST Studiolab manager Brendan Byrne’s Destiny Clock sequencer invention and sets of bitwise logic chips sharing a synchronized pulse. Hope to see you there!
