"Mobile Live Art and Music Performance," George Essl (Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science and Music, University of Michigan, http://web.eecs.umich.edu/~gessl/)
We are in the midst of what could be considered the second mobile revolution. Mobile technology has become smart and sensor-rich. This makes mobile devices much more than a convenience for making phone calls: they are powerful and malleable vehicles for creating art. In advancing mobile devices as platforms for artistic expression, engineering and art practice become intimately connected, with one facilitating progress in the other. This talk explores the development of open creativity on mobile devices, demonstrating how they explode the canvas of new music performance, including a discussion of mobile music pieces written by students as part of a cross-disciplinary course project at the University of Michigan.
