Developer Gregorio Zanon has announced uPhase+ – a new app for iOS that’s designed to let you improvise with phased sequences.
As shown in the above demo, uPhase lets you play sequences of different lengths against each other, creating complex patterns. This type of canonical phasing is a key element in Steve Reich’s early electronic and acoustic work.
To make things even more interesting, uPhase+ lets you distribute your sequences over a collection of networked iOS devices.
Here’s an example of ‘interactive minimalism’ using this feature:
The devices can be physically separated to add a spatial dimension to the sequences.
uPhase+ is schedule to be released Nov 27th. Pricing is TBA.
See the uPhase+ site for more details and examples.
