Intriguing iPhone use, per NYT: digital music making. 

Will mobile phone orchestras supplant traditional instrumental ensembles?

Will such orchestras resonate with audiences – and with classically trained musicians and musicians of all music genres?

Key quote from the story: “… anyone with a cellphone could become a musician.”

For the classical music industry, the ability for anyone to create music on mobile phones could help to enhance the general public’s overall appreciation for music and the music-making process.

A potentially useful audience-development tool? Perhaps.

Will you download a Smule app (or other companies’ apps) onto your phone?
