LAPTOP BATTLE OCTOBER 10TH AT NECTAR 412 N. 36th St., Seattle WA 98103

Calling all electronic enthusiasts!

The Laptop Battle has made it around the world, and now has made it back to its original stomping grounds. The NW Laptop Battle will be held at Nectar, on October 10, 2008. The showcase will star the baddest talent from Vancity to the PDX. Past NW contestants include Kris Moon, Claude Balzac, Zapan, KJ Sawka, Jacob London, Buck Nasty III, Studley Buffkins, Syzygy and Kinoko. Through the thick of wires, laptops and gadgets, each player will have 3 minutes to showcase the stuff they're made of to wow the judges and to get booties movin'. Each contestant will face nail biting elimination rounds, and eventually a winner will be crowned.

Laptpp Battle started back in 2003, Zach Huntting and Kris Moon from the Fourthcity collective created an original concept to bringing people and music together. You don't have to be an established musician, nor have high-end equipment to join; people use what means they have and create what they love. A wide variety of musical sounds are welcomed. The concept has caught on and has spread from Seattle to Germany, Miami, Tokyo, New York, Italy, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, New Zealand, the UK and beyond.

The rules are simple:

1. Gear specifications:
i. Contestants can use up to one (1) midi controller & one (1) soundcard.
ii. All gear must fit in a 2' x 2' square.

2. Battles are chosen randomly.

3. Battles are 3 minutes long. Contestants can choose whether they want a 30 second warning issued by the MC. At 3 minutes the MC will fade out the contestant's output.

4. Judges (5) decide the outcome of battles in a single elimination style.
