Mobile Phone Ensemble

I have recently begun a mobile phone performance group with students at Staffordshire University. The group is affiliated to the Staffordshire University Sonic Arts Network, and meets on a weekly basis to create live electronic music in a fun, relaxed and collaborative atmosphere. We aren’t yet using any custom-built instruments (check out Atau Tanaka and Adam Parkinson who create their own performance software in PD and run it on iPhones in RJDJ) – we are just using some standard apps that run on iPhones and Android, such as Bebop, Filtatron, Reactable and Nanoloop.

You can have a listen to our first piece on Soundcloud here. The piece will be performed at the upcoming Noisefloor Festival in May. The picture to the left is the graphical score for the piece.
