What Happens When Android and iOS Users Join Together? They Make Beautiful Music Together


Seeing how we’re nearing the holiday season, a time of good cheer and all that — I thought I’d tell you guys about a project looking to unite Android and iOS users all around the world for one day through music. The project is called Massive Symphony and through the use of their 111111 app, they’re attempting to create the “largest orchestra in the world.” The way it works is you download their free app (Android or iOS) and on November 11th (11/11/11) at 11:11 (GMT+1), your device will begin playing music, along with everyone else who downloaded the app, essentially creating the worlds “largest orchestra.”

Music from the app will continue playing each hour up until 10:11 so that “every time zone on Earth is able to join the great symphony.” Once the music is finished, you can view a map of all the people all over the planet who helped join in on the world symphony. I have to admit, while it’s a fun idea I don’t know if I buy into this whole “change the world through music” stuff and but I’m just an old Scrooge. Either way, I’ll be giving it a shot. Let’s just hope the music in question isn’t that gawd awful dubstep all the kids are listening to nowadays.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  9. I’m one of the developers of the project. Let me just say that the clocks in Android phones are unreliable. So we take UTC time from atomic clocks and convolute them in a non-trivial way to have a good precision. Android, as compare to the rest of operating systems, is a wonderful place to program!
