iPhones as Instruments?

The standard Mobile Phone Orchestra is a new musical ensemble that plays music exclusively using iPhones. Mentioning cell phones and music in the same sentence brings to mind cheesy ringtones, but to the ensemble iPhones have potential that’s far less pedestrian. One of the Mobile Phone Orchestra’s director/composers is Ge Wang who was partially responsible for the iPhone’s Ocarina application which transforms the phone into an electronic wind instrument.
