In conjunction with the release of Serj Tankian‘s new album, “Harakiri”, Warner Bros. Records has teamed up with the creators of popular beat making app IAmBeatBox to put out a custom iOs app called I Am Serj. The $0.99 app is now available for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch and gives fans a chance to rework, remix and create their own music utilizing the new songs that appear on “Harakiri” through the I Am Serj app.
Serj used the IAmBeatBox app to help sketch a couple songs off his new album and liked the iPad experience so much, he felt compelled to reach out to IAmBeatBox to see if they’d be into making one specifically for him.
“iAmBeatBox and all the Savage I Am apps have created an innovative way to sketch out music using beats and samples on the iPad,” explains Serj. “I used the programs to sketch out three of the songs from ‘Harakiri’ and am excited about launching my own app with them titled, I Am Serj, utilizing the music from ‘Harakiri’, my new solo record.”
The I Am Serj app takes the same app engine used for IAmBeatBox and fills it with loops and samples from all of Serj‘s solo records allowing people to create their own remixes of Serj‘s music utilizing the features and interface that iAmBeatBox has.
Tankian‘s video demonstration of the I Am Serj app can be seen below.
