SR: Gestrumental Moments In-flight (2013)

https://soundcloud.com/scottroller/sets/gestrument-inflight These are single-pass realtime improvisations playing an iPad 4 running the App Gestrument 1.2.4 (by Jester Nordin/Jonatan Lihedahl, see www.gestrument.com ) to create music with a virtual orchestra with whom I had had quite good and rewarding rehearsal and preparation time...
