LoAdKer For iOS Lets You Create Fractal Beats

loAdKer-ipadDeveloper Achilleas Sourlas has introduced LoAdKer for iOS, a new app that lets you create fractal-based rhythms:

LoAdKer is a rhythm generator that uses fractal sequences as a means to produce complex but musical results.

The software was developed by Ax.Art, aka Achilleas Sourlas, a musician and music software developer and is a product of his research into the use of fractals for music composition. It currently runs on iOS 5.1 and above. LoAdKer uses Csound as its sound engine, a powerful audio programming language, developed in the mid-1980s at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) by Barry Vercoe.

 Here’s a demo of LoAdKer in action: Continue reading
