Duet For SpaceWiz & Steinway

YouTube Preview Image

Sunday Synth Jam: Here’s a relaxed improvisation for SpaceWiz and Steinway by Jordan Rudess.

SpaceWiz is a generative music app. Rudess says “The beauty of this improv is that there is the element of the unknown, quite similar to jamming with a human partner. You can interact with SpaceWiz and throw particles at the planets to create sound, or just let things evolve on their own!”
