Interactive Musical Artwork For The iPad

Holderness Media releases Waviary      02/04/12
Holderness Media tells us that Waviary is a new, interactive musical artwork that is part instrument, part generative ambient music machine, and part virtual wind chimes.
A spokesperson told Sonic State, "Simple multi-touch control allows anyone to effortlessly create lush ambient soundscapes and environments, or simply listen as Waviary generates it's own forest-like sonic environments. The generative player can run while you play as well, allowing for a randomized ambient jam session. A sleep timer is included...put on headphones and let Waviary's weird, wonderful sounds lull you to sleep." Features:
  • Lush ambient tones and textures
  • Multi-touch controls allow expressive creation of rich ambient soundscapes
  • Generative mode creates endlessly evolving sonic environments
  • Varied tone sets (additional tone sets added with free updates) -
  • pitch control
  • octave up/down buttons -
  • lock button to lock orbs in place, or unlock to move freely
  • Sleep Timer
Jordan Rudess has commented, "I love apps that look good and sound good. This is one of them!"

Cute, but that would probably hold my attention for about 5 minutes before I got bored. I think Animoog and Sunrizer are the way to go for iOS apps that can actually be used as professional synths.
