Cool Tools for Digital Art and Music Creation!

Tales of Us App.jpeg
Tales of Us (app: iOS) Free
Double-exposing photographs was once considered a photographic mistake, but with Tales of Us (an app designed by Indie singer Goldfrapp), users can craft their own double exposures with thoughtful intention. Photo enthusiasts can layer two pictures and either “enhance,” “tone,” or remove the color for dazzling results.
Good for: solo exploration.


Chordion (app: iOS) $3.99 
A wide-ranging app that beginners and experienced musicians can enjoy. The beauty of Chordion is that it allows the playing of harmony and melody at the same time. Simply pressing on a hexagon selects a chord, while a keyboard on the right can be played without the possibility of a sour note. Creations cannot be saved in-app, but users can save to Dropbox or via iTunes file sharing. More advanced users will appreciate the drum machine and the ability to change the reverb, envelope, timbre, and much more.
Good for: solo exploration.
