FM3 has introduced Buddha Machine for iPad – a new app that offers six virtual Buddha Machines:
If you are new to the Buddha Machine, it is a palm-sized plastic box that plays ethereal music loops composed by the Beijing-based duo of Christiaan Virant and Zhang Jian, aka FM3.
The physical device has been described as “Beautifully useless” (New York Times) “Mesmerizing” (Pop Matters) “Addictive, hypnotic” (Santa Fe Reporter) and “Defiantly rough” (Wall Street Journal)
Since its introduction in 2005, the Buddha Machine has won global praise for its novel approach to music enjoyment and has been used in hundreds of recording and performance projects from a wide range of artists.
Featuring hypnotic music designed to create a calming presence in today’s fast paced world, the machine’s colorful charm provides an experience that is hard to define. Essentially, It’s a box with a life; a tool for living, and to many, a friend.
