Audio-sculpture hits smartphones
The xx have released an iPhone and iPod Touch app that recreates the audio-sculpture collaboration based on their debut album.
The band created the installation with video director Saam Farahmand in January 2010, and saw each of them being filmed individually playing their part on ‘xx’ songs ‘Intro’, ‘Islands’ and ‘Crystalised’.
The free app allows users to watch each part seperately or sync with up to two other users via bluetooth to play all the parts simultaneously like the original ‘sculpture’.
The app is available to download for free from the iTunes store now.
Uncut have teamed up with Sonic Editions to curate a number of limited-edition framed iconic rock photographs, featuring the likes of Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan and The Clash. View the full collection here.
