There are some really good arguments in this which would make me want to buy one if I didn’t already have one. Most interesting is that there are somewhere around 75 apps that are working on MIDI Mobilizer compatability!
That can only be good news.
Android 2.3 Gingerbread arrives on the 11th apparently. Not sure what it means for music.
The iPad edition of the Buddha machine arrives. Here’s what to expect:
If you enjoyed our Buddha Machine for iPhone, then you will LOVE this iPad version!!! Mix the music of SIX Buddha Machines to create your own evolving ambient symphony!
If you are new to the Buddha Machine, it is a palm-sized plastic box that plays ethereal music loops composed by the Beijing-based duo of Christiaan Virant and Zhang Jian, aka FM3.
The physical device has been described as “Beautifully useless” (New York Times) “Mesmerizing” (Pop Matters) “Addictive, hypnotic” (Santa Fe Reporter) and “Defiantly rough” (Wall Street Journal)
Since its introduction in 2005, the Buddha Machine has won global praise for its novel approach to music enjoyment and has been used in hundreds of recording and performance projects from a wide range of artists.
Featuring hypnotic music designed to create a calming presence in today’s fast paced world, the machine’s colorful charm provides an experience that is hard to define. Essentially, It’s a box with a life; a tool for living, and to many, a friend.
