Brief

Music for Smartphones using sophisticated technology and an entirely new method of composition. Each smartphone makes its own unique contribution to this musical piece. This serves as a retaliation to the criticism so frequently uttered against smartphone use today. Rather than the smartphones separating the audience by dragging their focus towards their screens, they come together to experience a unique moment of collectivity.

The Smartphone Orchestra is an orchestra in which anywhere from 10 to many thousands of smartphones are synchronized to potentially form the biggest orchestra in the world. It is an orchestra in which every participant’s smartphone plays a unique part; an orchestra that can perform anywhere in the world.

Developed by creative director Steye Hallema and Wild Vreemd, the Smartphone Orchestra enables people to experience being together in a completely new way: imagine shimmering musical sound fields in parks on hot summer nights, mass choreographies at festivals, unprecedented audience participation in theater shows, and spontaneous smart mobs at parties or demonstrations. The technology opens up numerous possibilities to tell stories or share experiences with mass audiences.
