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.

Outside The Box

This application is uniquely different in that it is as much art (performance art?) as it is entertaining. I am so pleased that Joerg decided to take the time to update this application to support iOS 11. It means that I can continue to use this enjoyable app when I need a quick mental recharge at work. I recommend you check out all of Joerg Piringer's apps as they are all refreshingly different, mentally engaging (artistically), and fun to play with. (My honest opinion!)

Just what I was looking for! obnoxious-noise-generator! App creates a bunch of random annoying and weird sounds. For most, that would be a turn-off. However, this is just what I need to annoy the undesirables. So, thanks, developer!

Very cool!

It’s very entertaining, watching and listening...makes me smile!
