This poster describes the making of Leork, the Virginia Tech Linux Laptop Orchestra. The challenge of the project was to assemble a laptop orchestra using open source software, create self-constructed speakers, and obtain netbooks for a minimal cost. The project goals were to design and build a website, build hemispherical speakers, and construct software patches in Pure Data. At the project's conclusion, 16 hemispherical speakers were built, a website was developed and made available at 12ork.music.vt.edu, and all software patches were completed.
