As an accomplished clarinetist, Eran has appeared as soloist with the MIT Symphony Orchestra and as a guest artist on the radio show From the Top and is the clarinetist for Radius Ensemble. His current research and teaching interests are interactive music systems, music information retrieval, and multimodal musical expression and engagement. His recent projects include *12*, an audience-participation work for chamber music where audience members use their mobile to musically interact with the stage musicians, and Tutti, a massively multiplayer mobile-audience performance piece where the entire audience becomes the orchestra. Eran is currently developing ConcertCue, a program-note streaming mobile app for live classical music concerts. ConcertCue has been featured in concerts of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and has recently been awarded a grant from the Knight Foundation.
