The Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk) presents the Norwegian ensemble The Parallax Trio. The group has a wide open approach to improvisation, and draws on a broad range of influences in their music – jazz, folk, electroacoustic, minimalism and noise. They are joined in “A Parallax View” by electronic musician Anders Tveit, who live-processes their performance electronically and moves their sound throughout the space using an array of speakers positioned around the audience.
A Parallax view features a 12-speaker setup in a circle in which the audience is placed. The speaker setup and live processing combined with the acoustic sounds lets the audience experience being immersed in sound, and bypasses the conventional point-location of sound sources.
