About the Event
The Michigan Mobile Phone Ensemble will perform at a public concert featuring all new works by students in
Performing Arts Technology, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and the School of Information
at the University of Michigan. Come to hear unusual new sounds, delivered in creative new ways!
The concert is the outcome of a multi-disciplinary course taught by Professor
Georg Essl. It merges engineering practices, mobile phone programming, and sound synthesis with new
music performance, composition and interactive media arts. In the course, students design and develop their own
new mobile phone instruments and compose new electronic music works exploring the creative potential
of their own technical creations.
