Kraftwerk release iPhone app

By | Published on Friday 18 March 2011


Kraftwerk have launched their own “interactive 24 hour music generator” iPhone app, calling it ‘Kling Klang Machine No 1’, which creates audio based on your surroundings.

Developer Norman Fairbanks explained: “It’s a novel system that creates music and sound based on realtime data depending on your location that are continuously fed into the app, meaning the ‘Kling Klang Machine No 1’ can’t be compared with other generative music apps which mostly utilise pre-programmed algorithms. There are some nice ways to manipulate sound and store personal preferences. For now the functionality is still kind of basic but the original concept will be more and more implemented in future updates and releases”.

If that’s still left you a little confused, try watching this video demo.
