KRAFTWERK KLING KLANG MACHINE No1
Kraftwerk have released a music-generating app for iPhone and iPad. Co-designed by Norman Fairbanks, the app uses GPS to play time-zone-specific compositions which can be altered by the user with sequencer and effect mixer interfaces.Norman Fairbanks:
It’s a novel system that creates music and sound based on realtime data depending on your location that are continuously feeded into the app, meaning the KLING KLANG MACHINE No1 can’t be compared with other generative music apps which mostly utilize pre-programmed algorithms. There are some nice ways to manipulate sound and store personal preferences. For now the functionality is still kind of basic but the original concept will be more and more implemented in future updates and releases.
