MUSIC FOR SMARTPHONES
Music For Smartphones is a sound sculpture composed from mobile phone ringtones. The piece consists of five ambient compositions created by layering and slowing down recorded ringtones from a selection of common smartphone models. Through simple manipulation, the piece creates a calm and reflective atmosphere from one of the most jarring and restless sounds of the modern age.
The installation was commissioned by What About Now, a nightly exploration of time, space and sound at de School, Amsterdam.
