Words fail me when it comes to the newest and trippiest application developed for the iPhone. RjDj is a music application. It uses sensory input to generate and control the music you listen to.
Since I haven’t seen a good written explanation of what this iPhone application does, I’ll crib from RjDj’s site.
The listening experience of RjDj is similar to the effects of drugs. Drugs affect our sensory perception, so does RjDj. RjDj is a digital drug which causes mind twisting hearing sensation. RjDj is promoting a music genre that we call “reactive”. The sound that listeners hear is produced by digital devices in the very moment it is listened to. Composers of reactive music often make heavy use of sensory input, which makes the environment of the listener part of the music that is heard. Compositions are called “Scenes”. Scenes have a different musical structure than traditional compositions and they often have no clear beginning and end. Some scenes promote active listener involvement and others promote passive listening. In any case, when listening to RjDj, take care and enjoy your mind twisting hearing sensations.
Sit in a silent room and whistle or clap your hands, walk briskly through the streets of New York and let the honking horns and beep, beep, beep of a sanitation truck in reverse mash-up with the soundtracks embedded in this unique application.
Blah, blah, blah…just download it and let me know what you think. Trust me, it’s worth $2.99.
