Intermorphic Ltd today releases Wotja. Feel like making a tune or a melody? As a new kind of “inmo” musical instrument, enter text and let Wotja create one for you – no musical knowledge is required. Your tune and message can be shared as a “wotja URL” by tweet, email, facebook or even instant messaging.
Each tune is generated from the first 101 characters that are enterered and which can be in any language (and even include Emoji), meaning lots of room for fun e.g. enter a name, a greeting or message, website address, equation, numbers, emoji or a lyric, poem or haiku etc. The creative and possibilities are endless.
There are a wide range of options for personalising a wotja such as the changing the sounds, fx, backing and colours it uses, as well as whether it just plays as music or the text/message is also read out (text to speech [TTS], using Apple’s Siri). For in depth information on Wotja features see the Wotja User Guide.
Wotja uses the Intermorphic Generative Music Engine and various generative music techniques, parameters and technologies that it has developed, including a self-contained SF2 supporting MIDI, sound and fx engine.
Pete Cole and Tim Cole, the Intermorphic founders and brother team said “We’ve been working on this app for over 6 months and so we are stoked to be able to release it at last. What you see in Wotja 1 is only the beginning for Wotja, and we have plenty more features and capabilities up our sleeve that we can’t wait to bring to it to extend it for use both as a musical instrument and for the creation of a new socially shareable “inmo” art form”.
Wotja is initially released as a universal binary for Apple® iPad®, iPhone®, iPod touch® and is available free on the App Store.
