CEEMI itself can be quickly described as the hardware generator of an instant virtual ensemble that turns any WiFi compatible device – a smartphone, tablet, desktop or laptop – into a collaborative electronic musical instrument on the fly. It was specially designed for the performance of music by groups of people without prior musical training.
I envision "Wanna CEEMI?" as a series of flash mobs in different public spaces of Pittsburgh, where passers-by will be challenged to connect their smartphones to CEEMI and take part in a massive creative music workshop/performance led by me. Each event will have as an outcome an original piece of music created on the spot and a videoclip of its performance.
