An application offers a way and platform through which an orchestra is able to connect with its audience and disseminate this information to its followers. Effectively, this is a model through which an orchestra is able to create a channel of direct engagement with its audience and provide them with digital content through the means of this platform. For instance, the Boston Symphony Orchestra has been able to use its iPhone app in creating an online conversation, creating a program schedule and enabling users to buy tickets for its events. Through the app, the platform is able to create and disseminate digital content in the form of its audios which users can listen, share and download for local use. In addition, users can also create a playlist of their favorite music tunes. Consequently, the app has enabled the orchestra to establish an ardent followership and a group of fans that resonate closely with the music and content that the orchestra offers (App Store Review, 2016).
In addition, the benefits of an app are not just limited to its ability to create an ardent following, but also in enabling users to create their own music according to their taste through the utilities that it provides. For instance, an app that has been created by cadenza enables users to create music which resonates with musical possibilities as manifested in the course of expression. The rich harmony and tapestry that it creates goes a long way in augmenting the process of music making and establishing a give and take music experience that closely resembles the course of typical conversation (App Store Review, 2016). In this process of music making, the user has the ability to record themselves and equally create content which they can listen to themselves or share with others through this same platform.
In the process, the use of an app also enabled the musical symphony to generate new ideas about ways through which to improve their performance and music. In the process, they are able to improve their musical confidence as part of their delivery process. Further and even more important is the role that an app plays in incorporating the benefits of artificial intelligence into the music making process. Through the app and its utilities, it is possible to create adjustments in the playing so as to fit the content features that are part of the recording. For instance, the use of Cadenza enables the user to fit the playing instrument with in terms of tune tempo and orchestral performance by allowing the app to listen and simulate the rest of these components in the process (Sona Cadenza, 2016). The app thus enables users to discover and enjoy music as resonates with their heart, a component that is crucial, be it is the course of personal enjoyment or during the course of addition, thereby making the entire process relatively simpler, elaborate and more meaningful.
The possibilities in the use of an app for an orchestra are astounding. At some level, the app and its utilities have the ability to deliver effectively and produce musical content which resonates closely and mirrors the output in a real orchestra. In this respect, the innate abilities of an orchestra application and its cutting edge algorithms would be beneficial and crucial in analyzing and generating content to the desires and intricate requirements that would be part of the orchestra (Sona Cadenza, 2016). The app utility would contribute in creating new music and enabling the users to augment and leverage on their ability through an improvement in utility that this technology provides. For this reasons, there is much that San Bernadino stands to gain from an app for its orchestra.
