Today OscilloScoop is released in the iTunes App store as a universal app for iOS devices. With OscilloScoop you make musical grooves by simply gliding your fingertips over spinning crowns; then sequence them into a real-time performance with a few taps. As effortless as a toy, OscilloScoop gives you the same tools pro DJs and electronic musicians use to create intricate grooves—but with an intuitive interface inspired by video games and animation.
OscilloScoop is designed by Lukas Girling, a creator of interactive musical interfaces who has worked with world-renowned musicians and music technologists including Laurie Anderson and Max Mathews. The app was created in collaboration with interactive artist and programmer Scott Snibbe, author of the bestselling apps Bubble Harp and Gravilux; and Graham McDermott, noted video game and app developer.
You can read a longer blog posting about Snibbe’s history with interactive music, including influences from John Cage and Brian Eno. Screen shots and press release can be found below.
