A sample video from my upcoming animated interactive version of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. The music is an arrangement of the slow first movement of the “Fall” concerto.

K235 is a game physics-based touchscreen musical instrument, and comes with 5 sound sets: Electronic, Chamber, Post-Jazz, Filthy Silence and #girl. New soundsets added as the author is so moved.
This has to be best piece of music I’ve ever done – warm distortion, sine waves, attention to attack and decay, and piano so simple that it sounds subservive in context. And the app framework renders the piece, in turns, listener-controlled, generative and semi-aleatory.
An excellent review that really captures my intent in creating the app:
Upon startup, the app loads the electronic music option automatically, or you can switch to the chamber setting if you’d rather fabricate some elegant, Muhly-esque, classical compositions. Either way, the layout is clean, simple, and decidedly modern. This attack on nostalgia from developer Peter Kay might come as a breath of fresh air if you’re tired of apps that retread the past or merely mimic traditional instruments.
