Cell phones at the symphony

Ok, so maybe not quite as controversial as the post title might indicate. Anyhow, via Engadget and Mashable short video of the 1812 Overture recreated with 1000 cell phone ringtones:

I agree with the spirit of the project (even if it is a commercial), and especially with this piece. Perhaps along with the bells that the audience rings near the end of the piece every year at Sobeys Symphony Under the Sky, people can contribute ring tones.

Oh, you can visit Mashable to watch the "making-of" videos.
