Sony Music released the Metallic Spheres app to promote the album of the same name by The Orb and David Gilmour. The app is built for iPhone,iPad, and Android. It enables users to dynamically mix tracks from the album to create a real time music experience that is constantly evolving. 3D graphics feature artwork from the album and visual elements (e.g., lasers, lighting) that are a hallmark of the Gilmour/Pink Floyd live concert experience.
Metallic Spheres was created in partnership with Addison Interactive and Sony Music. In its first week, the app was one of the top five paid music apps for both iPhone and iPad on iTunes.
From the Apple App Store:
Blending art, music and interactivity, the Metallic Spheres app allows you to experience the music of David Gilmour and The Orb in a new and exciting way. Using original sounds from both artists, tapping the various visual objects on your screen will create a unique soundscape every time you listen. The visualization and ambient tracks blend with your creative touches. It’s never the same experience twice!
