Following up on Grimes’ “AI Lullaby” on sound personalisation app, Endel, Plastikman (Richie Hawtin) recently composed and released “Deeper Focus.” Whether or not you’re a diehard techno fan, Endel’s AI powered functionalities make it remarkably intuitive for anyone to find their creative rhythm. The app is also great for meditating, timing a much needed power nap, or moving along a commute. Enhancing any of these experiences is the “Deeper Focus” mode. With Plastikman’s meticulously produced beats taking the helm, your relationship with time and sound will be like nothing you’ve experienced before.
“The Deeper Focus mode unites newly recorded Plastikman sounds, textures and rhythms with the Endel AI, exploring a new type of collaboration between myself and technology. As a control freak in the studio it is usually I who has the last word of how a track unfolds, however, in this exciting situation, the AI is the one who decides the final framework. Although this may sound scary to some, I believe it is just another extension of my belief in technology and it’s intrinsic place within my creative process. If you think about it, technology has always been between me and my audience, and this is no different, only that perhaps the technology in-between is this time a little more intelligent.”Plastikman aka Richie Hawtin
The details feature of the Endel app, shown below, is particularly interesting. It reflects the various peaks and valleys in a day, and your current position. If you’re feeling midday fatigue, you’ll see when to pause and rest to be of maximum productivity again – back in action.
If you’re looking to change up your routine, download the Endel app on your phone’s app store. There’s more unique soundscapes to come. Philosopher Alan Watts is creating the next one, with monthly rollouts coming in June.
