Workstations : Tabletop, BeatMaker2, Gadget (some of these can integrate other compatible apps), GarageBand,

(supposed to be also on androïd, but… )  the legendary multitouch french hardware has a second awesome career on ipad. On it you can design all the surfaces you need to control by midi or osc any existing software or hardware. Amazing objects, with all sorts of specific behaviours. It’s true : you can build anything with or without coding. Awesome for mixing, spatialization, live electronics, sound installations. Very professional.Other midi controller editors : Midi Touch, OpenOsc (also on androïd ?)
Some specific non-editable midi controllers for Logic Pro or other software

Of course, this list can’t be complete and new apps are released continously, it’s only the beginning specially on the appstore. It’s my selection at now. We are currently using these apps in different Audiorama projects for performances, installations, workshops.
If you happen to be in Florida tomorrow : I’m giving an overview of all these apps in an open and free workshop :
Saturday March 14th 2015 – 1 to 3 pm – at ACA Harris House 214 S. Riverside Drive New Smyrna Beach, Florida, USA.

Electric Shamans in Florida


Electric Shamans – an interactive sound installation by Bruno de Chénerilles
Saturday March 7th – 4 to 7 pm – ACA at Harris House, 214 S. Riverside Drive, New Smyrna Beach, Florida, USA. Refreshments served. Free and open to the public.

Created in May 2014 in Strasbourg, France, this interactive sound installation find its sources in the composer’s analog tapes from the eighties. All these sounds are reborn and edited in digital format and visitors can play, transform, remix and spatialize them on iPads. Come to make some music or just listen, no musical background necessary. Electric Shamans was produced in France by Audiorama and supported by Ville de Strasbourg and Institut Français.

As on every Saturday, you can also come at 1 pm  to my open sound workshop at Harris House. Whether you are a musician or not, adult, child or parent, you can come to talk, listen and play with sounds
