One thought on “About

  1. hey Robert,
    Was just checking out your work and your Dynamo project and thought I would pass along this project I recently completed that I think you’ll dig. It’s a semi-passive responsive generative music app for iPhone that use GPS movement, lunar phase, time of day, etc to transform how the music unfolds in real-time.
