Scott Snibbe, the developer for Björk’s "Biophilia" app, has developed an iOS app for the Philip Glass remix project—the app is titled REWORK_.
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.
The app is available via the
iTunes store here and more info can be found at the Snibbe Studio website here.
And for those in the NYC area: My Great Ghost is playing at the Studio at Webster Hall on Monday 1/21.
