Create and control tiny sound-creatures in the shape of letters that react to gravity or each other and generate rhythms and soundscapes.
abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz is a sound toy, a performance tool and an art work in its own right. You can play with the letter-creatures and watch and listen how they interact with each other or use them to produce soundscapes like you would with an electronic musical instrument. abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz blends art, biology, fun and physics to create a unique, dynamic and interactive sound ecology.

Ratings and Reviews
Poetry, music and performance on an iPhone!
So good to see, hear and feel art on the iPhone. This app presents perfectly the humour, cleverness and technical brilliance that digital poetics artist Piringer's work always provides.
I've incorporated these 'letter sounds' in my own work with good results . A great app for making you think about the sound of words.
So simple but so brilliant.
