Karl Bartos (electronic musician, ex-Kraftwerk, co-composer of songs like The Robots, The Model, Computer World,…) and Masayuki Akamatsu (media artist and author of various iPhone apps) created a 16 step music sequencer now available for free on the AppStore. Created in support of Red Cross site, the app was presented in the form of installation in Kyoto comprising 35 iPads and inviting guests to download the app to the iPhone and use the room as an instrument.
When Sync is an abbreviation for Synchronization, synchronization means that more work is aligned. This exhibition includes music and video that are synchronized, but they are not perfect. Instead of pursuing perfection the installation offers a glimpse into the world as a whole with individual differences.
This application includes a 16 steps sequencer , Multi-touch note input, 32 polyphonic tones + 1 drum track, 4 waves (saw, triangular, square, sine), 4 drumbeat loops and Wi-Fi sync play.
