Considering the dramatic changes and huge advancements in modern technology, classical music is long overdue for a high-tech makeover. Instigating what it appears as a new movement of orchestra, Cynthia Turner, a professor and conductor at Cornell, believes Google Glass can improve the way musicians interact with the conductor, audience, and music.

Turner is in the process of developing Glass apps that will let musicians scroll through sheet music; but more broadly speaking, she hopes to create an entirely new method of music notation.

Turner has been broadcasting her point of view as a conductor onto a screen during performances and switching out program guides with digital projections, but now she wants to free the music pit of stands and sheet music – a revolutionary idea that is still in the budding stages.

If you think about it, this is quite a challenge, considering stands and sheet music are every musician’s lifeline, but Turner is confident that Google Glass can be the solution.

Here is a video showcasing what it is like to be free of equipments.
