laptop battles

definition:

The laptop battle is a competitive event for laptop musicians to match their skills against one another. Battles are chosen randomly and conducted in 3 minute rounds. A panel of judges decides which contestant advances to the next round, single elimination style. It's a fusion of sound design, composition and stage performance, and a chance for laptop musicians to prove their skills in battle and develop techniques and strategies.



anyone ever been to a show like this one?! i really want to go there. any stories, experiences, etc.

we should do something like that in the future.

They just had one of those here at SmartBar in Chicago. It was sponsored by the place you linked.

I was also wondering how it went.
