Buon Chill
Francisco Ngyuen

Tell us a little bit about the piece, including what iOS devices/app you used to bring it to life.
I used Audiobus to route all the audio. I ran Bebot, Animoog, and iPolysix through the Input slot. The Output slot ran directly to Loopy HD. The MIDI Clock from Loopy was triggering DM1, but not routing into the Audiobus app. I used Animoog for the delay sync.

This was all done on an iPad2. There are some vocals too (first time!).

Give us a little background on yourself as a musician.
I began playing the bass guitar, then I switched to the synths, sampler etc. I really like to sample songs or sounds and then modify them live in the sampler.

I’ve got a project with Tommaso Casasola called The SuperEgos. Here’s an experiment with Lorenzo Commisso using djay for iPad – check it out HERE.

Why do you use iOS devices to make music?
They are fun, mobile, and there are some really good third party apps. In my opinion, the best and most innovative one is Audiobus.

Give us a quick tip – an idea that has helped you make your iOS music making more productive, fun, inspiring, or creative.
MIDI, MIDI, MIDI! When everything is synced, playing with the iOS devices is super fun and it lets you to focus on what you are actually doing, so that you can enjoy it.

Give us a link to a place where we can hear more of your music and learn more about you.
You can find more music from Francisco Nguyen on his SoundCloud site and you can also check out the BandCamp site for his band The SuperEgos.
