With electronic music, musician usually write the music in software and the computer is the interpret. After years as electronic musicians we were boarded by filling endless spreadsheet to make music. In 2002, we were touring in Europe, having no fun on stage, while seeing amateur rock band in their garage getting lots of it. We then decided to create Herrmutt Lobby as a research lab for live electronic music.
10 years later the band has become a collective with musicians, software developers, electronic engineers, … and our hard drives and shelves are full of homemade instruments, softwares and tools. Our music and concerts are true live act, the kind that you can rock or fail, the one with danger on stage.
Then we discovered that all that technology we created was the magical tools that help people without musical knowledge to feel what it’s like to rock the house. We used it in workshops, art installation and finally we made PlayGround. A platform where the public, no matter their skill level, can play, all by themself, their own live version of tracks made by hand picked great artists from around the world.
We’re now one of the Best App of 2016 and we’re featured as a demo app in Apple Store. But the most heartwarming for us is the awesome feedback we get from all the music enthusiast who found joy making music with PlayGround.
We will be glad to hear your feedback and suggestions. Let us know on Facebook, Twitter, or email us at …

Ratings and Reviews
The most fun I’ve EVER had on an iPad!
I’ve just discovered this app courtesy of Ali @ The Beat Community group on FB and it’s blown me away! I’ve been producing for 30 years, scratching, DJing and to have something so flexible and enjoyable as this is fantastic! I’ve been in a rut with music and scratching recently and I just want to cut like a nutter over tracks I’ve made out of this! Highly recommended!!
Absolutely genius creation
Had the great honour of watching Tom Swordz at his home scratching and was shown this app and how it worked. Iv never scratched before and what these guys do is so impressive but I could pick up the app and have as much fun as anyone as a total beginner. Addictive stuff. Best app on my apple products now. Big thanks to Tom and his mates.
Genius... to say the least!
No words can describe the therapeutic, empowering, energetic, fantastic effects that this app creates whilst allowing you to co-create songs, experiments, feelings in the form of vanguard sounds! Thank you immensely for "Sir Dr Master" Herrmutt Lobby and all creatives involved! Keep it up! I'm just a bit sad I missed the Ssaliva free trial... maybe I'll buy Asap.
