And speaking of roll-up keyboards, here's the perfect event: Laptop Battles. The battles are described as "a competitive event for laptop musicians to match their skills against one another. Battles are chosen randomly and conducted in 3 minute rounds. A panel of judges decides which contestant advances to the next round, single elimination style." Now that's pretty cool sounding. And the competitions are picking up some pretty high-profile sponsors in the world of digital music making, such as Native Instruments and Ableton. Perhaps the in the not too-distant future individual latop-artists will soon find the corporate money (aka sponsors) at their doors. Check those cereal boxes, kids.
