Audio Platform

Name: Koan • Rating: Hella Cool • Format: Browser Plugin • Info

Incredibly powerful “interactive audio platform,” not for beginners or otherwise faint of heart. This is a pretty advanced plug-in for your browser (Netscape or Internet Explorer), but more than worth the effort once you get the hang of simpler platforms. Brian Eno, godfather of ambient music, has used Koan to compose what he titled Generative Music 1. Technically, the software is enabled for “online” use, but it’s also a powerful desktop application.
