The LA Phil have come out with a cool iPhone app called Bravo Gustavo that makes let you know how it feels to be a world class orchestra conductor. The free iPhone app from the Los Angeles Philharmonic puts you in the shoes of condcutor Gustavo Dudamel so you can experience the rush of a maestro. The app is quite simple really but works flawlessly. Your iPhone or iPod becomes the conductor’s baton. A song starts to play and you just have to shake or snap your iPhone or iPod touch to change the tempo and instruments. You can also do it by tapping the screen, but what fun is that, right?
At this time the only has 2 pieces of music for you to conduct. You get March to the Scaffold, and Dream of a Witche’s Sabbath. Pick any song and after you hear the first note, swing your iPhone or iPod touch to move to the next bit of the song. It’s actually quite realistic, if you have sense of timing for music and rhythm. and makes you feel like you are really directing the orchestra if you close your eyes for a few seconds while you conduct a song.
Overall we enjoyed playing with the Bravo Gustavo iPhone app and found it to be quite original use of the built in accelerometer. Although there are only two songs, we can’t really complain since its a free app. Download it and see if you’ve got what it takes to become a conductor with the LA Phil.
