LPTP_Jm

Laptop_jam consists in an organized meeting of people interested in electronic music, experimental, electroacoustic, sound and visual arts related to music in a prepared space.

Participants will do different things during short periods of time / 10min. and one of them (in each turn) will have the “privilege” of control/ mix the signals of the other participants.
This kind of rules (sometimes flexible..) are oriented to avoid the Chaos that it´s suposed to be when you put “eight” people together with his machines making “any” sound at the same time without any kind of control..
This rules also helps to convert the classic electronic musician nomad and solitaire in a “part” of a music group. Each jam could be once a week/ twice a month and the estimated time of execution it s about 5 hrs…
Participants will be selected depending on his application. the good thing is having a very heterogeneous group so everybody can aport a different point of view, sounds..
