Dr Heisenberg’s Final Decision
Tell us a little bit about the piece, including what iOS devices/app you used to bring it to life.
This is a 50- minute ambient soundscape made on my iPhone and iPad. I used NanoStudio as my DAW. In this piece, I also used Sunrizer, Alchemy, SoundPrism, Stochastik Drum Machine, and Instant Drummer.
Give us a little background on yourself as a musician.
I have played the piano since I was four. I had to give up my piano career due to panic stage fright when I was 20. I didn’t play a note until 2009 when I got an iPhone. A year later I released Last train to Vienna – the first album in the world composed, mixed and produced on an iPhone. Since then I have released four albums and a bunch of singles. Nowadays I mostly make ambient soundscapes.
Why do you use iOS devices to make music?
I love the freedom to create anywhere. I drive a cab and I can make music in my car during the day. In my spare time, I make music at libraries, coffe shops, by the river, on the train…and at home in my comfy sofa….:-)
Give us a quick tip – an idea that has helped you make your iOS music making more productive, fun, inspiring, or creative.
I make field recordings from my iPhone. I use the SoundPrism interface to trigger Alchemy and Magellan with Virtual MIDI. Sometimes I just try doing stuff totally backwards.
