«BITWaves2» is a free app that is primarily made as a tool for use in BIT20's outreach composition program. You can record with the microphone, play with multi touch in polyphony, compose without a grid and bounce to wav in this experimental and very easy to use music creation tool.
BIT20 Ensemble, founded in Bergen, Norway in 1989 promotes the performance and presentation of new music through concerts, new music events and hands-on-projects in composition.
The idea for the app comes from Ole Andre Farstad and is designed and programmed by Stian Remvik at BEK. BEK, Bergen Center for Electronic Arts, is a non-profit organization situated in Bergen, Norway, functioning as a national resource centre for work within the field of arts and new technology. The app is made with Cocos2D-X and fmod by Firelight Technologies.
The development of this App was financed with support from Norsk Kulturråd, Hordaland Fylkeskommune, Bergen Kommune, BEK and BIT20 Ensemble.
