KJ Sawka’s Drum Banger (App Store link) is $4 iPhone app that’s a simulation of Sawka’s half-electronic drum set.
It’s designed to give fans a way to remix and sequence Sawka’s music from their iPhones and iPod Touches.
Loaded with cd-quality samples of KJ Sawka’s live drums and synth sounds, DrumBanger puts the user behind the drums to deconstruct and then reassemble the music into a new creation. DrumBanger represents a new way to
consume and enjoy music: not just by listening to it, but by simultaneously teaming up with the artist to create it.
“DrumBanger gives the audience a chance to create music the way I do,” said Sawka. “Writing and performing music is my life passion, and DrumBanger is my gift to the world in our modern, computer phone times. Now you can be involved in the music making process and get an idea of how beats are made and loops are played from a different point of view… the drum throne.” DrumBanger users touch and rub different instruments and devices in Sawka’s drum set to compose sounds, and can then arrange intros, verses, refrains, and outros using the Sawkquencer – a specialized music sequencer.
