The wonderfully titled abcdefg has been one of those iOS music apps I show friends to blow them away. Konsonant (iTunes link) is Joerg Piringer’s follow up. Don’t be afraid to use your konsonant creations in your own music productions.

I’d like an installation like this permanently in my living room. Created in Berlin by Joerg Piringer he calls this work [untitled] and describes it as “an interactive sound poetry installation”.
