As with the main part of the iPad music apps, you still can use BEATSURFING by hitting objects on the screen, but the iPad is not really accurate as a percussion instrument. If you want to play by hitting any type of interface, you should really be hitting pads or drums. With BEATSURFING, t’s more appropriate to slide over them with your fingers along routes, colliding with objects, triggering samples or effects. You can easily play a complete piece of music guided by your feelings and intuition, and reinterpret it in many ways.
It’s all about movement, and bringing back this intuitive way to make music.
Developing a piece of music by surfing your fingers on the screen and putting your sounds and controllers anywhere on the screen at the same time as you build your track is something really fresh. When objects can interact with each other, it becomes an organic environment. Surfing along the screen to generate music with great freedom is the main idea here.
