The Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk) is an ensemble of computer-based musical meta-instruments. The students who make up the ensemble act as performers, researchers, composers, and software developers. PLOrk, who have performed at Carnegie Hall in New York, the Annenberg Center in Philadelphia, and the National Academy of Sciences Museum in Washington, DC, recently received a Digital Media and Learning grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to support a mobile musical laboratory that students will use to explore new ways of making music with laptops and local area networks.
