Concerto in C Minor for Nokia, Motorola and Sony Ericcsson

Actually, it’s called Concertino for Cell Phones and Orchestra, by composer David Baker. From an article in Reuters:

“Baker said in a statement this was first time in his career that he had finished a piece but did not know what the result would be…There’s just no way to replicate 1,000 cell phones going off at once,” he said. (Thank God).

Clever mash-up of classical and modern culture?

Brilliant method of injecting some interaction into a classical music performance?

Shameless marketing ploy?

Just a really dumb idea?

You be the judge:

World Premiere Performance
Sunday October 1st, 2:30 PM
Dominican University (7900 W. Division)

And if you happen to get pulled over on the way to the concert for DWT, just tell the po-lice you were practicing. That oughtta work.

(This concludes today’s nikkos triple-header.)
