The University of Regina is set to debut its ‘iPad orchestra’ today, in a free concert at the Shubox Theatre on campus. Rebecca Caines, assistant professor in Creative Technologies at the University of Regina says her class of 12 students will be debuting their efforts today:
“Every iPad has the potential to be a piano, a violin, an experimental electronic device, a synthesizer – all of these different instruments and apps at the same time. So every iPad itself is an orchestra,”
Students in the class were given the option to develop a new iPad app or research and perform with the iPad. Eleven students opted to perform with the iPads while one lone student developed an app that modulates a violin with a special glove.
The experimental class is described by Caines as “an interception between technological innovation and artistic practice.” Students will be using various apps to perform popular hits and scores, to showcase the potential of a new form of music making.
