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.

Terence Eden found a turntable [Amazon] that cost only £30 (~$40): “I accidentally bought a load of vinyl records. So I decided to buy the cheapest, shittiest, turntable possible,” he writes.

If the last 50 years of education have taught us nothing else, it’s that it often requires different tactics to best reach different learners. To pick up a foreign language, some students take best to the old-school high school language lab method, using heavy repetition, verb conjugation and grammar emphasis to embed a new language. […]
For those who want a career in video games, there’s no reason to sit around and wait. EA and Rockstar Games probably aren’t going to seek you out and knock on your door with a job opportunity. But if you’re an indie developer with a good idea and some passion, you can create a really […]
Nobody is happy about the current state of our COVID-ravaged education system. With a new school year fast approaching, plans for teaching students still in flux, and political in-fighting driving more fear and confusion about whether or not to re-open campuses, teachers and parents are concerned.
