Band Land

Band Land

Undercoders

A fantastic music trivia app where you guess the band name via pixel art of the actual musicians. A few small tweaks and this game is top of the list (charge for app to remove ads, add sound effects to typing/awards, refine the custom keyboard so its easier to use)!

Habu Music

Habu Music

Gracenote

This app analyzes your music collection and presents a highly personalized mood map of your library via the Gracenote music database. It includes over 100 granular moods and 25 grouped moods to organize your music by characteristics such as Sensual, Peaceful, Cool, and Rowdy. Very interesting to see how this app grows, but, they need to update the UI to iOS7 standards.

Sensory Spaces

Sensory Spaces

Bang & Olufsen

Through movement of your mobile device you locate segments and loops of music from Mew and assemble them into a generative composition. There are three level called 'sound spaces' where users seek out these disparate segments of audio to capture. By controlling the physical location of your device (moving it up or down or left to right) it will auto-detect your movements and enable you to aim at the sound to zero in on it.
