In LOLC, the musicians in the laptop orchestra use a live-coding language to create and share rhythmic motives based on a collection of recorded sounds. The language encourages musicians to share their code with each other, developing an improvisational conversation over time as material is looped, borrowed, and transformed.

LOLC has been created by Akito Van Troyer under the supervision of Jason Freeman. It’s still being developed by Andrew Colella, Sang Won Lee, and Shannon Yao. LOLC is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation as part of a larger research project on musical improvisation in performance and education (NSF CreativeIT Grant Award). You can get the program from Jason Freeman’s website.
