Bow_o_Rama born from the desire to create a simple application of intuitive music, a small sound object that can stimulate the desire of the listener to discover acoustic particles; the audience is not a mere spectator, but an active part of the creative process.
The choice of my instrument, the viola da gamba, an emblem of the Baroque period and the instrument on which I decided to start a journey in searching new sounds and languages, is also related to the specific desire to give an acoustic sound texture to the audio.
Each sample presented in Bow_o_Rama is uncompressed, aiff to 44.100/24 bit, in order to ensure to the listener an audio CD quality, in contrast to the compression of common downloadable digital formats.
The application certainly is not perfect, I’m not a programmer but a musician, it’s the first app that I did using MAX 6 and is a first step towards the desire to offer a new way to enjoy music and contemporary art. Hope you will like it, and I’d love to know what you think about it (also bugs reports and suggestions)! :)

How did this project use Max?
This is my first app created with MAX6. It's entirely created with MAX.
