Ron Jarzombek (Blotted Science, Spastic ink, Watchtower) has released his debut single, ‘Beyond Life And Cosmic Kinetics’ as an interactive six track multitracking app. A detailed tutorial video can be viewed below.
In a statement issued on his official website, Jarzombek said that he began developing the app three years ago: “I’ve been wanting to get into the app world ever since I picked up my first iPhone 3Gs in ’09… I found a rocket scientist iOS programmer by the name of Oleg Kolokolov, and after many tweaks, twists and turns we came up with a very cool interactive multitracking app.”
Jarzombek explained that users of the app will have a more interactive listening experience than ever before: “The app features a volume control for each track, and on each track is a push button switch that alternates between two parts/instruments that are playing simultaneously. The user has the ability to mix and match all recorded parts. This isn’t just a matter of listening to a released song, it’s direct interaction!”
The single is currently only available as an interactive app; however, Jarzombek said he was considering releasing the song in other formats: “I may have this song(s) up on iTunes at a later time in some form(s), but as for now, it’s iOS devices only. The main reason I can’t really put it up for download as a song is because the musical piece was written to have interacting parts, which are chosen by the user”.
