Classical Notes

iPhone Makes Everyone a Composer

Posted at 9:13 AM on October 10, 2008 by Gillian Martin (2 Comments)

I must confess, I'm not part of iPhone Nation. I'm barely part of cell phone nation. But Julia Schrenkler from MPR's New Media department passed this notice along.

It tells about a new application for the iPhone created by the "Father of Ambient Music," Brian Eno, which allows the user to create ambient compositions on her iPhone while waiting for the bus, etc.

(And by the way, Mr. Eno and his pal David Byrne, formerly of the Talking Heads, bring their latest project to the State Theater in Minneapolis on Tuesday, October 14th.)

Your post seems to imply that Byrne and Eno will be performing together - this is not the case as Eno is not touring.

Thanks, Justin, for the clarification. Byrne is performing material he and Eno wrote together, but Eno is not performing.
