Making Music With iPhones
When University of Michigan students decided that normal musical instruments were too boring, they looked to the almighty iPhone for inspiration. A class that focuses on designing musical instruments on the iPhone platform will be culminating in a concert on December 9, 2009.
Students harnessed the technology inside the diminutive device, such as the microphone, speaker, accelerometer, GPS, compass, and touchscreen, to make virtual instruments that are only limited by the designer’s creativity.
Don’t expect to see the next catchy hit by Lady Gaga or Owl City to be played with virtual instruments, but the interest in this niche of music is slowly growing. You can see a video on the project here.
