Gather Your Phones for Mozart

We have become a nation of key taps and cell phone clicks. & You become aware of the clicks in your daily work flow when you get a new keyboard - all of sudden the tapping at your desk is louder and more resonant. & Then there's the common ring tone, most noticable when cell phones sing their way into a meeting, or movie, or, as in the other night, the Lyle Lovett concert at Humphreys (I was bitter and commenced with the glaring). & But today I present you with a strange and ingenious use of cell phone tapping, clicks, and...Mozart. & I also leave you with this question: & Isn't the human impulse to engage in random and odd forms of expression refreshing? & Or maybe it's this question: & Did that impulse increase with the birth of YouTube and its platform? & Enjoy!
