laptaps: soundboard workstations

A collaborative Hugh Davies-inspired instrument built with John McAreavey. We’re combining our action-sound forces to examine laptop performance, music and gesture. The Laptap forces the performer to sit in the same position as that of a laptop, to peer over the edge of the lid at any audience or fellow performance, and hides their hands as they play. In this position, how do we communicate gesture and intention?
