Dear fellow FOSS/Pd/Linux audio enthusiasts,

It is my pleasure to announce the upcoming April 17th (Saturday) spring L2Ork / DISIS event that will feature the debut of the Boys & Girls Club of Roanoke, VA satellite laptop orchestra, as well as several guest artists, including:

Ron Coulter (SIUC, percussion, composition, computer music)
Mark Engebretson (UNCG, composition, computer music, saxophone), and
Matthew Burtner (UVA, composition, computer music, saxophone)

The evening event will be split into:

. 7pm children's showcase designed primarily with children and parents in mind, and

. 8pm benefit concert of experimental music. Funds raised at this event will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Roanoke, VA, a non-profit organization that offers critical afterschool programs for children. Apart from L2Ork numbers, the 8pm program will also offer compositions involving innovative creative technologies, including musical robots.

The admission to both events is free.
