About the Laptop Battle

For the 5th year in a row, AMODA will present a Laptop Battle as part of its March Digital Showcase. This event will feature sixteen of Texas' most skilled electronic musicians competing for the title of champion.

The battle revolves around contestants using their laptops to musically outperform one another in a series of elimination rounds. Each performance must be 3 minutes or less and the only equipment permitted is a laptop and one external controller. Judged by a panel of music and art experts, the outcome of each match is decided based on a combination of emotional impact, originality, stage performance, live manipulation, and crowd response.

The Laptop Battle concept originated in Seattle several years ago (from Fourthcity Records), and has since been held in cities all over the world. The winner of this battle will receive a free trip to compete in the National Laptop Battle Championships in Seattle later this year.
