THE ELECTRONIC MUSIC'S NEW CULTURAL PHENOMENON, from SEATTLE to EVERYWHERE
>The laptop battle is a competitive event for laptop musicians to match their skills against one another. Battles are chosen randomly and conducted in 3 minute rounds. A panel of judges decides which contestant advances to the next round, single elimination style.
> It's a fusion of sound design, composition and stage performance, and a chance for laptop musicians to prove their skills in battle and develop techniques and strategies.

Let's get it on!
