new age music: there's an app for that!

not that i want you (or me) to sound like michael bolton (notice: no link?) or yanni...but i love me some iphone apps!...and Ocarina is yet another app in my arsenal of silliness...and time wasters. the developers use the Iphone’s built-in movement sensors and touch screen to form a keyed instrument…or a kind of flute, by detecting the passage of your blown breath and translating it into intensity of sound. you can upload your new age masterpiece to the Ocarina online community and listen to the work of others. can you get more contemporary than a virtual instrument that automatically shares its output ? ...and its an iphone, of course: how cool are you?
