Back when the iPhone 4S was “the thing” I went to a social gathering of some creative friends of mine in my neighborhood at that time in San Francisco.
At the end of the gathering the host asked each of us to share one tip about something we’ve discovered.
One person demonstrated the Aeolian Harp App on his iPhone.
As soon as I got home I bought the app for $1.99.
Now a decade later, Aeolian Harp is still available, and getting favorable reviews!
From their website:
“Make music while you draw. It was developed by Uwe Oestermeier available for iPhone or iPad.
User defined parameter and color schemes can be used to explore the manifoldness of the underlying particle system.
The compass can be used to locate the following instruments in the four directions of the winds: Balalaika, Celtic Harp, Guitar, Gamelan, Guzheng, Kalimba, Koto, Marimba, Orchestral Harp, and Sitar. Each of these instruments can be assigned to a compass direction with a double tap on a cardinal point.”
Fill your heart with your own art and music.
