Now free on iTunes, a new C3 music app highlighting twelve unique interactive music experiences based on C3 songs.
“It’ll restore your faith in adventurous songcraft” - Anil Prasad, Innerviews
C3: Motion Study presents innovative music in an interactive, touch-driven format for the iPad. Twelve C3 songs are transformed into a moving, multi-layered musical mash-up, a playfully pliable puzzle. Motion Study is visual and visceral way to experience the motion & emotion in this evocative music.
Seattle-based C3 is a collaboration between Steve Ball and Paul O’Rear whose unique music combines odd, intricate and interlocking guitar parts with stacked vocal harmonies. C3 performances feature a constantly morphing line-up of world-class guest musicians who collaborate to present improvised songscapes and multi-layered story-songs. Arrangements, tempos, keys, and harmonies unfold dynamically in the moment, and no song or show is ever performed exactly the same way twice.
The C3:Motion Study app reflects this same aesthetic.
Based on C3’s 2013 book and CD “Motion Study” this is the App equivalent of a live C3 show: subtle and surprising. The app, created in collaboration with Zentric – the world-class dev and design firm already doing amazing interactive work for Tony Levin and Genesis photographer Armando Gallo – gracefully unveils the hypnotic layers of C3’s music and art.
Another experimental baby step toward ‘playing with’ music in new ways extending my long term work with Guitar Craft, Seattle Guitar Circle, Rockslide, Rifff, DirectMusic, BootlegTV, Ximer, and the Surface Remix Project.
