ORCHESTRA 2020 - Animated Notation for Mobile Phone Orchestra
ORCHESTRA2020.COM is a web application under development to enable performances of novel music for mobile phone orchestra. The web application is providing the musical instruments (performer) and animated music notation (conductor) for the compositions to perform. Initiated and developed by Swedish composer Anders Lind in collaboration with Studio with and Björn Yttergren. Max was used to create an animated notation system, which gives performance instructions for six individual parts of the mobile phone orchestra (Orchestra 2020). No musical knowledge is required to participate in a performance. 30 minute of rehearsal was needed for the performance made by the 14-year-old school children playing on the orchestra2020.com instruments (seen in the video above).
