The Computer Orchestra is a crowdsourcing musical tool that allows people to upload sounds into a database for musicians to access and play. The technology was developed by Fragment.in. The crowdsourcing and interface of the tool most interest me. I think it is pretty unique that many people can contribute to the work of one musician. I think this makes the possibility for musical sound is just far wider than one can understand. In addition, I think the interface is pretty unique because it uses a Kinect and several computers to play. Under the right maestro, I think this tool can produce some really great sounding music as shown in the TEDx video.
