Sunday Synth Jam: The DigiEnsemble Berlin performs Ostinato for 8 iPods, a piece of music, in classical style, composed especially for mobile devices.
Ostinato for 8 iPods is for eight players with iPods, iPhones or iPads. The piece is designed to be easy to perform, exploring the idea that any group of musicians, with iOS devices, could perform it.
For this performance, the DigiEnsemble plays the iOS app ThumbJam.
Here’s a behind the scenes look at the DigiEnsemble’s performance of Ostinato for 8 iPods:
The DigiEnsemble is an experimental study group, founded and led by Matthias Krebs, that follows a systematic approach to playing on mobile devices (iphone, ipad & co). Regular meetings are held for group practice as well as discussion and refinement of the approach.
