Tod Machover is a composer and professor from MIT.  It’s his job to create a Symphony for Detroit and he’s asking Detroiters for help. Right now he’s working with people living in Detroit and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra to compose what he’s calling “Symphony in D.”


The electronic music venue, Populux, recently opened in Detroit. There are big plans from a club owner in Berlin to bring back the techno scene to Detroit.
