Description
So ... a continuation of ...." This is an iphone apps." "Wivi Band" ... Busking will be taken to a whole new level. The instruments on this app. are amazing. iPhone plus GB ambient loop "city" . I cannot tell you how much fun the "breath control" element of this app. is. Just imagine 3 artist on a street corner with just their iphones and some small practice amps .... what a crazy world we live in.

This the 3rd track in a series of experiments:

iPhone rules the roost.
I don't care that the BB beat it this quarter. BB had to do a buy-one-get-one offer in order to be the iPhone.

The fact that this is an iPhone app is nothing short of amazing! Love it.

drakonis said 3026 days ago (May 4th, 2009)
lots of fun...
I can feel a resurgence of melodica players needed, as this amazingly cool app takes off... I remember that the "ocarina iPhone App" sort of started it all, but Wivi totally blows the doors off the quality, VERY cool. And a nice little double-reed trio thing you got going there too!
ttfn,
Drakonis

davisamerica said 3026 days ago (May 5th, 2009)
here is
the crazy thing phil ... just jacked phone into mic input and added a touch of reverb in GB and nothing else ... the quality on this cheap fix just kinda surprised me ... it's a really cool app. and gives you the true feeling of a reed or brass instrument due to the breath control ... don't understand it but love it. Thanks for the listen man.

This is a winner! Well 'played'; beautifully done.

Somewhere on this site I once saw a comment to the effect of "don't use the 'experimental' or 'other' label on your tunes because no one will listen to them if you do". This is the sort of cut that could turn that prejudice on its head! Thanks very much; I'm off to check out the others......

If it breathes music, you'll use it Jack
This is all new to me, and pretty amazing at that. Sounds great even if on iMac or something like that, but from an iPhone. Too much man.

You done good Jack on several levels. First, some great sounding music, and second, I now know about "Wivi Band". Thanks for both

Got a pound for a struggling artist?
Your setting here is brilliant - I am immediately transported to a city street as scores of people take time from their day to pause and listen to this inventive ensemble. And all on an iPhone - wow - what a gift to the traveling musician/business person.

You're not running dry on inspiration by a long shot. Really enjoyed this.

Cheers,
Doug

Wow!
I get comments from my wife and coworkers about different apps they've downloaded, "Have you seen/tried this one yet?" This Wivi Band thing you're demonstrating sounds really amazing! You should qualify for some kind of commission from Wivi for this :)

One question though is if you do get an incoming call, how easy is it to accidentally answer and end up blowing in the callers ear :P

Very cool track!
