Experimental composer John Cage has turned 100 and to celebrate, the John Cage Piano app has been released for both iOS and Android mobile platforms. The app shares sounds from Cage’s infamous Prepared Piano—a piano altered by objects placed between and underneath the instrument’s strings.
I downloaded the free iPhone version for a quick try and was impressed by the intuitive UI, well-designed menus and unique selection of audio samples. Several samples come with the free version, as does the ability to record your own compositions and share them via social media.
