There’s an increasing number of odd and interesting apps out there that further extend the tendrils of the electronic music community. One such newly released app is Somnium, created by 14 year old John Bergin (get it for $.99 here). Featuring the work of ambient composer Robert Rich this was built for the iPhone and the iPod Touch. The app creates a mood for long-duration listening by playing hours of randomly crossfading loops, selected from the original Somnium audio tracks. The user interface is very simple, just a slider that determines how slowly the loops move forward.
