The Smartphone Orchestra

An orchestra in which every person in the audience and their smartphone plays a unique part.

The Smartphone Orchestra is an orchestra in which anywhere from ten to thousands of smartphones are synchronised to potentially form the biggest orchestra in the world. 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 WildVreemd, 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 theatre shows and spontaneous smart mobs at parties or demonstrations. The technology opens up numerous possibilities to tell stories or share experiences with mass audiences.
