Hello, welcome at the site of Tin Men and the Telephone.
We’re currently working on a new INTERACTIVE ALBUM which will be released the 26th of September in the Bimhuis in the form of an APP!! The idea behind this is that we found the beloved CD a little old-fashioned for today’s standards. Nowadays people are used to the interactivity of the internet, mobile phones, digital TVs, smart toilets and automatic cars. Wouldn’t it be just wonderful if you could experience music with the same amount of flexibility?
This app allows the user to change and manipulate elements in the music in order to create a unique listening experience. And because each individual track has an attractive graphical interface of its own, there is also a dynamic visuals content that we found missing on previous releases. In other words, if you’re bored by the music, you still have something to look at!
Feel like participating? We just launched our project on the crowdfunding site Voordekunst:
Our lovely virtual singer was friendly enough to record you a little video message:
