Abstract or description

The greatest challenge facing performers today is that of reaching an audience - particularly given expectations of availability and access as digital natives come of age. The Laptop Tour consists of a continuing project focussing upon solo performances from non-traditional concert spaces, creating a flexible approach to touring that challenges the conventions of the classical music concert. A single performance can be experienced in up to three ways: physically in the space, live streaming and archive access. This approach makes it possible to build a diverse following, creating an approach that can bring this art form not only to the urban world, but physical and virtual venues in the rural context - traditionally an arena under-served in terms of live performance. The project has a large potential for real world and digital community address whilst bridging genres.
