What is at stake when we are constantly in touch? Do our phones help us to be more or less connected to one another? Together with creative collective The Smartphone Orchestra, we are composing a new piece of music: Music for Smartphones III. A joint composition that is a reaction to the frequently heard criticism that smartphones are only driving us further apart. Poet Babeth Fonchie reads from her work, and zooms in on vulnerability and connection in online life.

PS. Don't forget to take your smartphone! (As if you would.)
