The App – Pixi
Pixi, a free iOS based artwork synthesis app from Coldcut built on the concept of Granular Synthesis that was used to create the album imagery. Currently, the app exists in two forms– a modular synth iPad version and a Player version for phones and pads. Zen Brakes Vol. 2 is included in the app so users can interact with the album.
Users can create and upload pictures to accompany the music, allowing for visual remixes of their own images. Read more about Pixi here.
Limited edition CD
The record also sees a limited edition CD release with a printed booklet featuring 10 different Pixi artworks to go with each track from the album.
