Thumb Piano vs iPhone

Multimedia artist Marcus Fischer captured some of his experiments manipulating thumb piano with Curtis (App Store link), the granular synth app for the iPhone that’ll set you back 1 American dollar:

the strange agency made this great little granular synthesis iphone application called curtis.  it’s named for composer, author, granular synth advocate curtis roads. this is just a quick little thing i recorded using a captured bit of sound from a thumb piano.  pretty fun little application to play with.

Curtis is a very limited (or focused, depending on your viewpoint) application. But it’s amazing that for $1, you can turn your iPhone into a very useful tool for exploring the world of granular synthesis.
