CiCLOP performs live accompaniment for the film Panorama Ephemera

Panorama Ephemera is a multimedia journey through the conflicted landscapes of twentieth-century America.

CiCLOP, the Cincinnati Composers Laptop Orchestra Project, performs a live score to Rick Prelinger's 2004 film Panorama Ephemera, a collage of sequences drawn from industrial, advertising, educational and amateur films. The films' often-skewed visions construct an American history filled with horror and hope, unreeling in familiar and unexpected ways.

Using laptops, strings, and percussion, and drawing on American folk song, found recordings, newly composed music, and improvisation, CiCLOP's unique blend of technology and musicianship creates a moving accompaniment to this powerful film.

Each laptop player in the ensemble has his or her own speaker unit, a homemade hemispherical amp made out of six car speakers and an IKEA salad bowl. These "hemis" can project audio in any direction, allowing us to create sound that spins, rotates, and bounces around the room.



The Cincinnati Composers Laptop Orchestra Project was founded by Joel Matthys in February 2011 at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. The group has performed more than 15 concerts in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin. The group is dedicated to expanding the musical potential of laptop computers, while also exploring methods of performing and improvising with musicality and taste.

The members of CiCLOP are composers and computer musicians ranging from the undergraduate level to faculty. Several have played in other laptop ensembles, including MiLO (Milwaukee Laptop Orchestra) and LOL (Laptop Orchestra of Louisiana). Current members include Drew Dolan, Conor Grace, Lindsey Jacob, Carrie Magin, Benjamin Martinson, Joel Matthys, Sangbong Nam, Paul Schuette, Steve Weimer, and Hye Jung Yoon.

CiCLOP's pieces are written in Pd-extended, ChucK, and Processing, all of which are powerful software programs that are also free and open–source. That's free as in free speech, and free jazz.
