My Great Ghost, "Glass Machine"—remixing Philip Glass, with an app
Here is a video of My Great Ghost, whose remix of "Music in 12 Parts" is the first track on the record, performing an entirely new track using the app.
More about the app:
The studio has built a REWORK app that includes interactive visualizations corresponding to 11 of the remix songs with visuals that range from futuristic three-dimensional landscapes to shattered multicolored crystals and vibrating sound waves. The app also includes an interactive “Glass Machine” that allows users to create their own music inspired by Philip Glass’ early works by simply sliding two discs around side-by-side, generating polyrhythmic counterpoints between the two melodies.
“This is a way for people who don’t have the experience of manipulating music material to see what it's like,” says Glass.
And for those in the NYC area: My Great Ghost is playing at the Studio at Webster Hall on Monday 1/21.
