I’m sure you’re pirating most of your music nowadays; you probably have a torrent client opened up right now, swallowing tracks from the next pop-up site that will allow you to get away with it.

How do you feel about apps becoming the emerging consumer experience in the music industry?

Julia Kaganskiy from the The Creators Project explains thusly:
The app allows fans to experience Passion Pit’s tracks in two different ways. The first is as a generative music video that’s different each time, serving up a unique combination of graphics, animations and photographs by Mark Borthwick, who did the album art for Gossamer.

For “Take A Walk,” users create new melodies on top of a backing track using a kind of harp-string spider web interface.
