WATCHTOWER Guitarist Releases 'Beyond Life And Cosmic Kinetics' As Multitracking App

"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!."

A seven-minute in-depth tutorial can be seen below.

"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."
