Excitement encompasses UI laptop orchestra

University of Iowa School of Music faculty member David Gompper and music composition students discuss the evolution of the university's laptop orchestra. Going forward, the ensemble will go by the name LOUI (Laptop Orchestra at the University of Iowa).

Thanks to a generous award from the Student Technology Fund, composition students in the University of Iowa School of Music have been able to lay the necessary foundation for the school’s laptop orchestra.

The students have created hemisphere speakers for their performances, and the composers are finding themselves on the stage for more than just taking a bow post-performance. School of Music faculty member David Gompper says the composers’ energy levels are reaching new heights through this project.
