Another new approach to making mobile music comes from ‘Elementals’ for the iPhone / iPod Touch.  Here’s how the app is described:

The concept of Elementals is to provide a simple user interface to create music by placing and swapping icons,called Elementals, on sections of the iPhone screen, called Islands.

The audio generated is a combination of the Elemental providing the audio sample and the Island shaping how the audio is played. You can change the music by moving the Elementals, swapping Elementals, gently shaking the device, and recording your own audio to a Elemental.

Elementals Features:

  • Customize your own music using unique samples
  • Choose an Elementals audio while playing music
  • Simple interaction produces interesting music
  • Utilize shake gesture to easily mix or start music
  • Adjust volume per island/sample
  • Record your own audio tracks, up to 7 tracks available
  • Add delay to recorded audio

This reminds me of a really odd alarm clock thing a friend gave to me ages ago, but I can’t remember the name of it.

Also worth mentioning that this app is 107mb in size.
