Apps can help us fall in love with music again

“Apps are not just a return to our interactive past. They also represent something fundamentally new. With the ability to create an experience that is neither as open-ended as an instrument, nor as closed as a music video, apps let us play in a customized, highly designed world created by a musician that never existed before. Like the birth of cinema or opera, musical apps represent a synthesis of formerly separate media—videos, instruments, interactivity, and performance—into a seamless whole.”
