Baker, Hoyle and Ryan present ‘Ring’ for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad

Posted in wrought by juliobesq on May 29, 2011


Back in the summer of 2005 I proposed the interaction for a collaborative soundwork with Adam Hoyle. Providing the graphics for web based version, but the project fell into the weeds during a hiatus sourcing suitable sounds. Then there was some discussion about changing the sound/image symbiosis from ‘Ring’ to ‘Wave’. I presumed such procrastination from myself meant the project had withered.


But since then Adam decided to re-code it for iPhones and iPads, I got a call last December requesting a design for a simplified interface along with a logo. He also asked the composer Nick Ryan to create the audio for it along the lines of my original intention, something like a Tibetan temple bowl pushed to explore the three extremes of attack, sustain and decay.

Yesterday an email arrived announcing ‘Ring’ is live and for sale at iTunes.

Nice work Adam and Nick, thank you, my first collaboration where I didn’t have to assemble the nuts and bolts.
