Created by Jono Brandel (aka jonobr1), Carolina is an experimental musical landscape composed of vocals, guitars, bass and mellotrons made in collaboration with music artist Kimbra for her album release, The Golden Echo. Part of the just launched Android Experiments website by Google, ThreeJs made app allows you to change the perspective, pinch-to-zoom in and out and take in all the layers of this song with colourful and abstract environments. Each item on the trip represents a specific sound in the song. Together they create a road to Carolina.
While Carolina is a native Android Application, it’s actually a packaged website. The project was developed on Google Chrome and then deployed using the Mobile Chrome Apps Command Line Interface, CCA. This made development smooth because as Jono was able to develop and debug using Chrome Developer Tools, then deploy as an Android Application for final proofing.
