Princeton Laptop Orchestra Receives MacArthur Foundation Digital Learning Competition Grant

The Princeton Laptop Orchestra is one of 17 winners of the Digital Media and Learning Competition, which awards funds to projects that use digital media in innovative ways for formal and informal learning.

The contest, funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, awarded $238,000 to the Princeton Laptop Orchestra (PLOrk for short) to support a mobile musical laboratory that students will use to explore new ways of making music with laptops and local area networks.

PLOrk, an ensemble of computer-based musical meta-instruments, grew out of a freshman seminar taught in 2005 by Perry Cook, a professor with joint appointments in computer science and music, and Dan Trueman, an assistant professor of music.
