Crowd-sourcing a Symphony for Detroit
Have you ever thought about how the city you live in could be represented in sound? Or even in music? The Detroit Symphony Orchestra and composer Tod Machover decided to ask the citizens of Detroit this very question. Working with the community, they have created a collaborative symphony with sound submissions and contributions from the public. It has just premiered, and Tod Machover spoke to Weekend's Paul Henley.
