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.

Even many of the apps are nearly perfect, though once they run […]

A similar tally is listed at a follow-up Indiegogo page. Unlike […]
The forthcoming Atari VCS got a mixed reception from players, who are wary of a nostalgic cash-grab but hopeful for something more versatile and capable than Nintendo’s one-shot classics consoles. A great sign: not only has it received spec bumps to 8GB of RAM and a decent GPU, but owners can install Linux. You probably […]

It’s good to be proactive, but when it comes to preparing for an emergency situation, one of the most important items you can pack is a flashlight. After all, whatever else you include in your kit won’t be of much use if you can’t see what you’re doing. The Viper 1000-Lumen Tactical Flashlights not only […]
Chances are you took a handful of language classes in high school, and aside from a smattering of conjugations and vocabulary words, the only things you likely remember are the dry, rehearsed sentences that did little to make you speak like a true native. If you’re still hoping to learn a new language but want […]
