Dedicated to electronic and instrumental concert music, LASO presents works that are highly creative and technologically sophisticated, representing an adventurous and provocative multiplicity of aesthetic approaches. Sincere, evocative, powerful, challenging, beautiful, sensuous, transformational. Poetry of sound.

Played back over twelve loudspeakers surrounding the audience while performers are positioned centrally, the audience sits inside a ring of music, at once powerful, intimate and encompassing.

Previous concerts within this series have garnered the following praise:

"...sensual flowing sound engulfed the senses, proving once more that there is no end to what you can do with electronics."

Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times Music Critic
