Scott Snibbe was featured in a half-hour program on CNN’s The Next List, which profiles forward-looking thinkers in the fields of technology, science and social change.

Host Dr. Sanjay Gupta, and producer Tracy Dorsey brought her crew to Snibbe’s studio in San Francisco for a three-day shoot that resulted in an intimate and extensive portrait to discuss, among other projects, recent work with James Cameron’s interactive “Avatar” exhibition at the EMP Museum, Bjork’s breakthrough Biophilia App, and the future of interactivity.

Snibbe also wrote a blog posting for CNN you can read on their site: “Apps can help us fall in love with music again.

“Scott Snibbe talks Björk’s Biophilia, apps and interactive music
And why album apps could bring back the ‘falling in love’ stage for music fans”

The Guardian UK, Stuart Dredge, October 21, 2011

“Snibbe thinks that one of the downsides to the digitisation of music is that this falling in love stage has turned into a “casual relationship”, where people skip around albums, or listen to songs while walking, travelling and doing other things.

“You miss that falling in love period, and go immediately to the ‘brushing your teeth together in the bathroom phase’,” he said. “But an app can demand all of your senses and attention at once. That’s something exciting for musicians. A lot of them lament the demise of the album experience due to digital distribution. But one thing about the app-album is it reclaims people’s attention for an entire album.”

“Some ideas you need to bring to the public directly yourself to prove their viability…I often tell people my apps are useless programs — as useless as a song, a short story, or a painting.”

Bubble Harp, one of Apples Top Ten Art and Music Apps of 2010 for the iPad and iPhone is now available as a new version for the Mac, and one of the first apps available through Apple’s new Mac App Store.
