Dialtones : a telesymphony

Dialtones was a concert performed entirelly though the audience's cell phones ringing tones held back in 2001. On entering the theatre, each atendant would give their phone number, which was inputed in a database. In exchange, participants where given a prearanged seat number and a particular ring-tone was automatically donwloaded to their handsets. Because the audience?fs positions and sounds where known to the Dialtones computer system, the performers could create spatially-distributed melodies and chords.

Although maybe a little chaotic, It'll be really nice if somehow the participants got to really interact with the performers through their cells.
I really want to see what this people are up to these days.
