Developed by the italian interaction designer at Fabrica, Angelo Semeraro, ‘Sadly by your side’ is the debut album of the electronic musician edisonnoside. The Record describes and explores the theme of distance through a dark and blurry instrumental electronic music. ‘Sadly by your side’ is not only an album, but a an iOS app; a processing and remixing tool where each song can be endlessly transformed depending on the images you focus on with your camera.
Using custom built software, the visual input is converted into a new image painted with red, blue and black. Each of these colors directly affects elements of the music. In the end, each track is unique, with a remodelled harmony, melody and rhythm, constructed as a direct result of the environment captured by the camera. The iPhone is used as a window to the world, a world that alters the perception of the album.
