LOUi: the Looper Concert!
In the fall of 2021, I taught the LOUi ensemble (Laptop Orchestra at the University of Iowa) online. With a great group of six students, we learnt about the tradition of looper performances. Every student installed the Logelloop looper software and composed a new piece using it.
The concert took place with a very limited audience (just the members of the course) and was streamed live. Here are a couple of experts that show a great diversity of aesthetic approaches: even though the students used the same software, they really managed to keep their creations very personal.
