Â´Endliche AutomatenÂ´ is a Laptop Orchestra from Berlin who interprets and re-constructs electro-acoustic pieces of contemporary audio art and electronic music. The musicians form an ensemble of laptops, each functioning similar to an instrument within an orchestra. The combination of this multi-coherent network of sounds, the latest software, and versatile audio systems continually opens up new possibilities for interpretations. The fundamental idea behind the Endliche Automaten | Laptoporchester Berlin (EALOB) is to create and maintain an extensive repertoire of electronic, electro-acoustic and audio-visual compositions â which can be presented live in changing constellations, similar to what a traditional ensemble does. The transition between visual art, sound art and human stage presence is the integral element of EALOBâs performances.
Endliche Automaten | Laptoporchester Berlin is permanently experimenting with different configurations of sound and vision.
The orchestra was found in 2005 in Berlin and currently consists of 7 members.
