FANTOM SENSORY REMIXER
We collborated with Massive Attack founder Rob del Naja to build a dynamic 'sensory' remixer as part of a thought experiment around how music might be consumed on future augmented reality devices.
Working with the new iPhone X, AR Kit and the Apple Watch to build a truly innovative app based on procedural inputs from real world user sensor inputs and data such as motion, heart rate, onboard camera and time of day.
We then added touch screen inputs to mimic the effects of eye tracking might have on compositions created this way as well as sentiment analysis using the new face tracking features available via iPhone X and AR Kit.
And just for the hell of it we also included a blockchain rights management tool courtesy of the innovative minds at Blokùr so artists can see how many times their audio assets have been implemented in user’s sensory compositions.
The app is available for iOS devices from 5s up from the Apple App Store.
Classic Massive Attack
Working with Robert del Naja, the sound designer and programmer Robert Thomas and developers 2 Handed Coding, we created a brand new version of our 2016 Fantom app that allows fans to create their own sensory mixes of the classic Mezzanine songs and share their creations on social media as videos.
Massive Attack fans get the chance to remix each track from the classic album Mezzanine. Using the onboard sensors of their iPhones including motion, time of day, camera and touchscreen,
We integrated AR Kit into our build of Fantom 2.0 Mezzanine, creating the ability to change the track sequence via facial expressions and to develop interesting selfies.
