Group composing. Interesting idea.
Jason Freeman is an assistant professor in Georgia Tech's School of Music and he uses technology to sweep away the boundaries between composers and audiences. One of his most widely known projects to date is "Piano Etudes," music for piano enabled by the Web's open-ended community of tinkerers. "Piano Etudes," commissioned by pianist Jenny Lin, consists of a series of musical fragments that can be rearranged on the fly by the performer. But anyone can have a hand in the mix by going to the accompanying website and clicking on the various music fragments to create new compositions. Some visitor-created pieces have even been selected and performed in concert.
