Arte Institute proudly presents Summer Nights Series with the performance "CEEMI - Collaborative Experimental Electronic Music Instrument" by Gil Teixeira at Union Square Park North Plaza on July 26, 2016 at 8pm.
CEEMI is an innovative piece of technology that turns any WiFi compatible device – a smartphone, tablet, desktop or laptop computer – 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. Gil Teixeira - CEEMI's creator - wil
challenge the audience present in this event to become performers themselves and lead them in the creation/performance of an original piece of music on the spot.
