This Friday Underworld and Apple are kicking-off on three exciting new projects.
Underworld’s show at The Fox will be the worlds first live audio-visual broadcast to the iPhone. This technology wonder will be brought to you direct from the Fox Theatre in Oakland and accessible through Underworldlive.com. I’ll be there shooting the event. It’s the first time I will have seen the bands legendary show featuring some of the biggest dance hits of the last 15 years.
The broadcast is completely free and all you need is a computer with Quick Time installed on a broadband connection or an iPhone on a wi-fi connection running iPhone 3.0 or higher.
In addition to the live event, to celebrate the release of the full Underworld back catalog for the first time on iTunes, Underworld, in partnership with cutting edge developer iZotope, bring you a nifty iPhone iDrum application containing many tunes from Underworld’s juke box of techno classics.
Featuring tracks from all Underworld’s albums and including ‘Born Slippy’, ‘Two Months Off’ and ‘Cowgirl’, the application allows the user to remix, re-sequence and reconstruct 12 Underworld tunes and also features a piece created by the band themselves exclusively for the application.
With specially commissioned artwork from Tomato’s John Warwicker the application is the closest you’ll get to dropping the kick drum on ‘Born Slippy’ without getting on stage with the guys yourself.
