December 13, 2012:Philip Glass remix album gets a beautiful iOS app

The REWORK_Philip Glass album set a bunch of artists including Beck, Amon Tobin and Cornelius to work remixing the composer’s songs. Now it’s got a very impressive iOS app from Scott Snibbe Studio – which previously created Bjork’s innovative Biophilia app.

The REWORK app offers 11 “interactive visualisations” for tracks on the album: “From futuristic three-dimensional landscapes to shattered multicolored crystals and vibrating sound waves”.

But there’s also a feature called Glass Machine that lets fans create their own music inspired by Glass’ work by sliding two discs around the screen. “This is a way for people who don’t have the experience of manipulating music material to see what it’s like,” says Glass in a statement.

It looks fabulous, we have to say. The app is being sold on Apple’s App Store for $9.99 / £6.99. Here’s a video demo:
