                  Abstract

                  In this paper we seek to outline the methodology and philosophy of the Huddersfield Experimental Laptop Orchestra (HELO). Placing the ensemble in context of similar work, we discuss the Do-It Yourself (DIY) laptop instrument design paradigm, and the incubatory benefits that arise from participant-centered approach to ensemble rehearsal and performance.
