Today Snibbe Studio — the developers behind Björk's Biophilia app — released a beautiful new interactive app for Beck's remix compilation album, Rework_. The album features remixes of award-winning composer Philip Glass' original works by notable artists like Nosaj Thing, Amon Tobin, Memory Tapes, and others, and plays the album alongside unique artistic representations of each track. The app also allows users to remix their own Glass compositions using the "Glass Machine" mode, which has a stylish, gesture-based interface. The app is available for $9.99 — the same price as the full album on iTunes — on the iPhone and iPad, and you can see it in action below.
