"Beyond Life And Cosmic Kinetics" (B.L.A.C.K.) is the first song released by Ron Jarzombek (BLOTTED SCIENCE, SPASTIC INK, WATCHTOWER), as an interactive six-track multitracking app.
States Jarzombek: "I've been wanting to get into the app world ever since I picked up my first iPhone 3Gs in '09, but I didn't know how I could fit into this world. Well, I finally figured out that I could use the iPhone/iPad as an outlet to release songs! After this wacky light bulb moment, I tried for the first few months to do the programming on my own, but soon realized that I needed to find an experienced skilled programmer who could take my vision and make it a reality. I found a rocket scientist iOS programmer by the name of Oleg Kolokolov, and after many tweaks, twists and turns we came up with a very cool interactive multitracking app. The app features a volume control for each track, and on each track is a push button switch that alternates between two parts/instruments that are playing simultaneously. The user has the ability to mix and match all recorded parts. This isn't just a matter of listening to a released song, it's direct interaction!."

"Ron Jarzombek - Beyond Life And Cosmic Kinetics" is available now at the App Store.
Adds Jarzombek: "I may have this song(s) up on iTunes at a later time in some form(s), but as for now, it's iOS devices only. One of the main reasons I can't really put it up for download as a 'song' is because the musical piece was written to have interacting parts, which are chosen by the user."
