  3. 3. Matthias Krebs About Matthias Krebs is a musician, music educator, physicist and opera singer. For many years now, he has participated in several theater productions as a sound artist and composer. Since 2006 he has been focused on electroacoustic music, synthesizers and net music. In 2010 he founded the DigiEnsemble Berlin at the UdK Berlin Career College. It is currently the first professional music ensemble that regularly performs mobile music on stage. Further, Krebs delves into the field of app music (music making with apps) in his blog as well as in several music article publications and in his current dissertation. / 3 by Cora-Mae Gregorschewski
  4. 4. Matthias Krebs / 4 Professional musicians with diverse musical backgrounds got together trying out how to turn daily mobile devices into instruments. They perform their music live on stage. Currently, they predominantly use apple devices. Nevertheless, they are experimenting with different mobile platforms. With this they aim at finding ways of using all of these daily devices as music creation tools. www.youtube.com/digiensemble Gewandhaus, Leipzig 2012 www.digiensemble.com BMW Welt, Munich 2013
  5. 5. Matthias Krebs Vision My aim is to find ways of enabling practically everybody to use daily devices as musical instruments. My Mobile Devices mobile devices running iOS: some iPods, iPads and iPad mini mobile devices running Android: Nexus 7: 4.2.2 Samsung Galaxy S2: 4.1.2 mobile devices running Windows 8: Acer ICONA | W700 / 5
  6. 6. Matthias Krebs Invitation: Join a five-day workshop on mobile music making! The summer school will be a composition and sound workshop, in which participants will try out perspectives and the potentials of “app music”. A range of different sounds and musical compositions will be developed in groups and discussed. Results of the interactive creative activities will be presented in a public performance. The workshop addresses interested parties as well as musicians, sound artists and music technologists, who like the idea of making music with digital sensor controlled devices (smartphones and tablets) and who are seeking for an interactive exchange with others on new musical forms. At the same time, the workshop addresses composers and creative individuals (from the field of marketing/media production), who are keen on creating film material and background music for media productions.

  8. 8. Matthias Krebs Making Music on iOS vs. Making Music on Android iOS Android + more music making apps (~2000) - less music making apps (~150) + more musical APIs (core midi, core audio, audiobus, virtual midi, audio copy etc.) - support for MIDI and USB-audio is not implemented in android + more external add-ons (yamaha, tascam, akai, k&m, ikmultimedia and many more) - it’s starting (k&m, ikmultimedia) + latency (around 6.6ms (128 samples) to 26.8ms (1024 samples)) - latency (around 30ms to 200ms) is not utilisable for “real-time” music making + more developers for musical apps and some bigger companies like korg, moog, yamaha etc. - it’s starting + more apps utilize many different kinds of built in sensors - not many developers have yet experimented with built in sensors - more expensive devices and add-ons + wider distribution of android devices / 8

  24. 24. Matthias Krebs Summary • Music apps for android are available for a wide spectrum of musical usage. • The following apps are particularly suitable for musicians: Musical Tools and Utilities, Beatmaker, Djing/Remix-Apps and Controller. • Neither instrumental nor synthesizer apps are yet advanced enough for making music in real time because of the high latency. • All in all, android music apps are not as functional, comprehensive and efficient as music apps for iOS. / 24

  43. 43. Matthias Krebs Are Your Ready to Take Android Seriously as a Music Platform? NO! fragmentation “It's not just the latency that kills audio apps on Android. It's fragmentation and having to test on 40+ different devices.” market “And of course the chicken and egg problem of there not being a market, since Android still sucks revenue-wise compared to iOS.” More: http://evolver.fm/2012/05/23/developer-explains-why-android-sucks-for-some-audio-apps / 43
  44. 44. Matthias Krebs Hope “That's definitely chicken and egg because decent music apps that work on Android could really start something big up... a snowball effect.. Did you hear that FL Studio Mobile is releasing on Android soon?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTFVS7ZQfLE / 44

  49. 49. Matthias Krebs Me (Matthias Krebs) For me the iPad is a pioneer in touch-screen technology and is still superior to android mobile devices when it comes to audio and music creation. Not only are there more external add-ons supporting the iPad, it also has many more apps available, ranging from music players to the most professional, coming with a wide variety of applications: soundtoys, / 49 app instruments, effects, sequencers, control surfaces, musical tools, etc. Concerning mobile music making, there will probably be no way around iOS in the near further – especially for making music together in groups or on stage. Nevertheless I am keeping an eye on music apps for Android. I frequently use Android for other purposes like communication or mobile media consumption. Because there are so many people with Android devices I will continue testing them and I’m planning to use Android music apps in music making workshops and with the DigiEnsemble Berlin.

  51. 51. Matthias Krebs 14 things you should do to help the world of mobile music http://www.palmsounds.net/2013/02/14-things-you-should-do-to-help-world.html 1. Keep making music on mobile 2. Share what you make on SoundCloud or wherever makes sense for you 3. Tell everyone about mobile music making 4. Tell people about the apps you love and why 5. Think about gifting a mobile music app to someone who might enjoy playing 6. Rate the apps you love in the app store and leave reviews 7. If there's something you don't like about an app then give constructive criticism and don't just leave a bad review. Remember that developers can't respond to reviews on the app store 8. If you like one of the excellent mobile music based blogs then buy your apps through that blog as that's how they make money. 9. If you're so inclined, start your own blog about mobile music making and let people know 10. If you can, then make videos of what you're doing and let everyone know that you've done them 11. Tweet! 12. Make your music in unusual places, just because you can 13. Join the communities at developer's forums and get involved in the discussion 14. Enjoy it! / 51
