This Rainer Hersch Orkestra's 'iPhone Remix' Will Put a Smile on Your Face

Some performances never get old.
Exhibit A: The Rainer Hersch Orkestra’s interpretation of the ubiquitous iPhone beeps, bops and bloops that many people will hear on any given day. More impressive than the arrangement itself — and it is impressive, with comedic clarinet honks, delightfully familiar interpretations of the marimba chimes and even a special appearance from Siri — is how the group takes the viewer on a romp throughout London.
From Tube to Trafalgar Square, Rainer Hersch brightens the day of many a passersby with his musical take on electronic sounds. The Orkestra is known for weaving together comedy and classical music and they didn’t fail this time. Give it one, or several, views and continue the day with a smile on your face.
Just don’t get disappointed the next time your iPhone rings and a talented outfit doesn't appear out of nowhere to finish the song.
