"We see the app album as a new way to bring back that engrossing experience we used to have of buying a musical album and putting it on the record player for the first time, sitting on the floor and reading the liner notes and looking at the album art."

"With each tap of your finger, a new polygon cuts its way into a dynamic, throbbing mosaic. Depending on the track and mode you’re playing (there are two tracks, each with two modes), you can do some interesting things with these unpredictable shapes."

“It’s possible to create any form of reality from a combination of visuals, sound and other senses. That’s why we love movies. Interactivity is even further along the spectrum from cinema towards the way our perception works because we can actually change and affect it rather than just sit back and watch it.”

“The mobile app gives us the chance to return to falling in love with music. Because an app fills our visual and tactile senses in a way that goes far beyond a cardboard sleeve, we’re able to give it our undivided attention.”
The Guardian, October 21, 2011
“An app can demand all of your senses and attention at once. That’s something exciting for musicians. A lot of them lament the demise of the album experience due to digital distribution. But one thing about the app-album is it reclaims people’s attention for an entire album.”
