LONDON, April 22 (Reuters) - A British composer isplanning a "New Ring Cycle" -- a symphony composed from the ringingtones of 30 mobile phones.

Composer Simon Turner and writer Marcus Moore are to give"SIM-phone-ya" its world premiere at a music festival in July.

"The work is supposed to be a bit of fun," Moore told Monday'sLondon Times. "You hear these things go off every day so (wethought) perhaps we could use them to do something moreinteresting."

They plan to invite 30 mobile phone owners to play the ringtones in the as-yet unwritten piece.
