In preparation for their UK tour Massive Attack has released a new iOS application in the form of the Fantom app that provides fans with four tracks from the band’s latest upcoming EP as well as providing ways to create your own personal dub mixes.
The Massive Attack iOS app is now available to download via the iTunes App Store for free and utilises the advanced sensors and Health Kit features of iOS devices to remix the latest tracks with your heartbeat.
The Fantom app supports any Apple smartphone from the iPhone 5S upwards and is available to download from today.
Fantom features the brand new EP from Massive Attack and lets you play back both the ‘original’ mixes of songs as composed by the band but also dynamically produce your very own ‘personal’ dub mixes.
‘Personal’ mixes reflect your movement and balance, the time of day or night, your location and surroundings (as captured by your device’s camera). Try moving around and pointing your camera and recording the effects as it generates a live mix from your unique set of inputs.
For those of you with Apple Watch, tap the Fantom watch app Heart Rate mode and your heartbeat will vary the harmonic and rhythmic cadences of the songs. Moving your wrist will also create different effects on tracks. If you are stationary then the mix will also reflect this.
Live social media events also trigger interesting sets of mix events. Your individual Fantom audio mix data can be shared with others by sending pictures or video clips of your current mixes to your contacts – in turn their app will open and playback your personalised mix.
