San Francisco, California – Aspiring iArtist deeje is pleased to announce version 7 of tappr.tv, featuring Remix capabilities for digital dances. By tapping, swiping, and tilting, users can record and play back kinetic, multi-layered visual “dances” to their favorite music. Finished dances can be published to the tappr.tv network under a Creative Commons license, and the new Remix feature allows users to mutate an existing dance by changing wands and layers, and adding new tracks.

The heart of tappr.tv is the “wand”, an instrument that makes light instead of sound, which responds to a variety of user inputs with bursts of particles and light. There are 100 wands available, each personally curated by deeje for their unique and beautiful kinetic qualities.

In the Studio area of the app, users can record their wand motions into multiple tracks to create a visual “dance” to a favorite song. When finished, users can publish their dances to tappr.tv under a Creative Commons license. There are over 3500 dances already published by the bourgeoning tappr.tv community.

In the Theater area, users can watch, rate, and share visuals to their favorite music. With the user’s permission, tappr.tv analyzes their music library to identify their favorite artists, and then automatically finds and downloads matching dances.

New in version 7 is the Remix action. Users can remix any dance from the Theater, which creates a new dance in the Studio and references the original tracks. Users can then change the wands and layers of the existing tracks, as well as add and remove tracks to create a new dance, which can also be published.

“From the very beginning, I wanted tappr.tv to be an open platform for kinetic expression,” says deeje, “and the remix capabilities fulfills that foundational goal. Our global dance party is just getting started!”

tappr.tv Live has been experienced at Maker Faire, Burning Man, the GLOW Festival in Santa Cruz, and other events and parties around San Francisco. The app was awarded the SF MusicTech Summit XIV (2013) Startup Challenge Showcase.
