Video: Is the iPad an Amazing Musical Instrument, or a Tool of 'Orchestral Destruction'?
There are many amazing uses for an iPad. Among the device's potentially revolutionary applications, as I wrote back in April, are those related to making music. As several musicians told me, having a 9.7-inch multi-touch screen attached to a fast computer with an audio output opens up a crazy universe of possibilities. Case in point: this video, in which an "iPad Orchestra" performs "Sweet Dream," a piece written by Ilya Plavunov, on an app called Seline HD while wearing T-shirts indicating which "real" instrument's part each musician is playing.
