Musicians found out a long time ago that they can make a living creating music on things that aren’t necessarily musical instruments, and it seems that the Gorillaz are no different: their entire new release, The Fall, was made entirely on iPad.
You can download the album in its entirety on thefall.gorillaz.com, where they give the list of iPad apps used to create it: “Speak It! / SoundyThingie / Mugician / Solo Synth / Synth / Funk Box / Gliss / AmpliTube / Xenon / iElectribe / BS-16i / M3000 HD / Cleartune / iOrgel HD / Olsynth / StudioMiniXL / BassLine / Harmonizer / Dub Siren Pro / Moog Filatron”
Engadget posted a track from the release called “Phoner to Arizona” that leaves me wondering whether app-created songs can ever really take the place of their predecessors, but the Gorillaz have always had a knack for quirky surprises, and this is no exception.
If you get a chance to download the rest, we’d love to hear your thoughts about it. Or, if you’ve created your own music on the iPad, please feel free to share a link in a comments!
