Launch Event Miami Beach What’s New?

Nicolas Lobo & Dylan Römer Purple GOO App Launch

Nicolas Lobo & Dylan R̦mer Purple GOO App LaunchThursday, August 1, 8pm-11pm РThe Wolfsonian-FIU, 1001 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach

The Wolfsonian–Florida International University will host an App Launch for Purple-Goo, a new sound stretching application for the iPhone and iPad created by Nicolas Lobo and Dylan Romer. Purple-Goo gives listeners a tool to deconstruct pop music into its atomic structure. Miami-based band Krisp will be performing two live sets at 8:30pm and 9:30pm in the Wolfsonian lobby, and the live audio will then be processed using Purple-Goo to fill the “sonic time” between the live sets. Purple-Goo can stretch a 3 minute pop song into a score lasting hours, and even days, by playing each sample audibly from a sound file containing 44,000 samples a second. Purple-Goo, now available as an iTunes free download, currently allows a “stretch” of up to 100,000%.
