A week ago the free Inception iPhone App was introduced. It’s a project by the movie’s director Christopher Nolan, Michael Breidenbrücker and Hollywood’s star composer Hans Zimmer. As an absolute Hans Zimmer fan I tried it out immediately and I must admit, it is intriguing. It uses augmented sound through the iPhone’s headset to change the “dream” your are experiencing which is underlined by music composed by Hans Zimmer.
This app is a dream machine that transforms the world around you into a dreamworld. It uses augmented sound to induce dreams through the headset of your iPhone and iPod Touch. It will change your perception of reality.
Inception The App transports Inception The Movie straight into your life. New dreams can be unlocked in many ways, for example by walking, being in a quiet room, while traveling or when the sun shines. You will get realtime musical experiences, featuring new and exclusive music from the Inception soundtrack composed by Hans Zimmer.
Hans Zimmer’s music alone is reason enough to get the app, but this augmented sound implementation is a live feedback loop into the actual music experience and is really amazing. Through this feedback you change the music and therefore the dream itself. The app contains 10 different dreams so far. These are:
- Reverie Dream
- Still Dream
- Full Moon Dream
- Traveling Dream
- Action Dream
- Sleep Dream
- Quiet Dream
- Sunshine Dream
- Africa Dream
