Abstract: FLO (Female Laptop Orchestra) is an all-female, internet based, networked, music ensemble exploring online global, multi-location music performance. This output comprises a 6 minute live tele-improvised performance took place at the Testing Grounds, Melbourne on June 1, 2019. The performance featured 4 musicians, including 2 live performers at Testing Grounds, 1 performer in Sydney and 1 performer in Italy. The performers were also joined by a digital drawing artist in Melbourne.
The performance was an improvised response to video streamed performance of 2 Japanese based dancers in woodlands in Tokyo, Japan. The performance explored a number of emergent technologies including Live Shout and Soundjack and comprised an eclectic mix of sound sources, including pre-recorded samples and field recordings and live processed vocals.
The project investigates the integration of a number of emerging technologies and compositional approaches to live performance with inherent latency brought about by the technologies in use. The performance was supported by a competitive artist residency at Macgeorge House along with Melbourne University, Testing Grounds, Rode Microphones and Audio Technica technology company.
