Conceived and designed by electronic music producer/DJ, Josh Gabriel (one-half of GRAMMY-nominated electronic music act Gabriel & Dresden), Modify Is a new kind of music app that allows anyone to remix in real-time music created by your favourite dance music artists. Simply by using your fingers on the touch screen of a phone, you decide how the music should sound.
Modify is all about interactivity and all songs are remixable. Any user, can in a few short steps, add their own remixable song, browse the existing library for familiar artists and make new discoveries. Possibly one of the most important features is the ability to grow a community around a meaningful connection of artists and fans.
The app has partnered with electronic music label Black Hole Recordings and 20 of their artists so that you'll have plenty of music to get you started right away. Artists participating include Andain, Andy Moor, Arkham Knights, BT, Christina Novelli, Cold Blue, Craig Connelley, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Gardenstate, Markus Schulz, Mark Sherry, M.I.K.E. Push, Nifra, Solarstone, SOMNA, Pavel Khvaleev, Richard Durand, Robert Nickson, Roger Shah, and Sean Tyas.
Josh Gabriel: "I've been working since the 1980s experimenting with different ways for people to use simple controls to create and manipulate music in real-time. Being a DJ//producer/songwriter for the past 20 years has given me the opportunity to meet music lovers all over the world and understand the power of music to connect people. Modify was born out of the idea of giving the joy of making and creating music to people with a passion but no musical or technical experience. We have had interactive "movies" in the form of video games for decades now, but no equivalent currently exists for music. Our hope is to pioneer interactive music/visual experience to give music fans unique control over the music they love."
If interested, you can help Modify come to life with your participation as a Kickstarter backer. The funds raised by this Kickstarter will allow for the completion of the final stages of development and bring the App to the iOS and Android stores.
