What’s this?

My friend Larry Legend has been working on this project and live event with composer Aaron Siegel for several months, and it’s due to take place tomorrow.

“GROUP is a collective sound work that will start on individual mobile devices and ends with participants coming together for a large-scale gathering at 12:45 PM on 21 June 2011 near the corner of Wall and Broad Streets. Anyone with an iPhone or iPod Touch can download the GROUP app from the Apple App Store and be a part of this experience.

The app is free so get a copy today and head to lower Manhattan tomorrow and take part; it should be amazing. You can read more here.

By the way, this is a great example of how, like the iPad, the iPhone is remaking our notions of what art can be. Desktops and laptops were fantastic tools for artists, but iOS devices allow participation in the arts in dramatically new and different ways. We’ll be seeing a lot more of this sort of thing.
