Every week, iOS Music Tunes will feature a piece of music made with an iPad, iPhone, or iPod – directly from one of our readers. There’s a lot of artistic potential in iOS devices, and iOS Music And You readers are putting all the fantastic tools to use in creative and exciting ways. This regular feature will be an opportunity to appreciate the interesting things that our readers are doing with iOS music, get some new ideas, and kickstart the creative process. If you’ve made some music with an iPad, iPhone, or iPod that you want to share, submit it now – you can get the info HERE. Now sit back and enjoy today’s featured reader on iOS Music Tunes . . .

Francesco Nguyen

Tell us a little bit about the piece, including what iOS devices/app you used to bring it to life.
I used an iPad2 with the apps Animoog, Funkbox, and Thumbjam. Everything was recorded into GarageBand using Audio Copy.

Give us a little background on yourself as a musician.
I use synths, analog equipment, and digital equipment. Even the press call my music Indietronic, but I think that my work is essentialy pop in a mellow mood.

I also have a project called The SuperEgos.

Why do you use iOS devices to make music?
I starded with an iPod Touch in September – I was amazed by the possibilities and the quality of the apps. The portability and power of the iPad 2 now allows me to compose and edit anywhere, anytime.

Give us a quick tip – an idea that has helped you make your iOS music making more productive, fun, inspiring, or creative.
Approach the apps not as a replica of hardware instruments but as instruments themselves.

Give us a link to a place where we can hear more of your music and learn more about you.
You can check out more music from Francesco Nguyen at his SoundCloud Page and The SuperEgos SoundCloud Page.
