Drop Beats with Patatap

by Parent Co. February 16, 2015

Patatap is a portable animation and sound kit that both kids and adults will love. Tap your fingers on the A-Z keys of your keyboard or screen of your mobile device to create melodies charged with moving shapes reminiscent of the art of Piet Mondrian and Wassily Kandinsky. Press the space bar to change color palettes and matching soundscapes. The more you play and experiment with patatap, the more possibilities you discover. Designer Jono Brandel created Patatap based on two fundamental disciplines: graphic design and computer programming. His motivation for creating Patatap was to bring the medium of visual music to a broader audience. Brandel collaborated with composers Lullatone from Japan to create this melodic and hypnotizing music app. Patatap is available on the desktop for free. You can also download the app on an iPad, iPhone, Android, or tablet for just 99 cents and play it offline. Try it for yourself below. The kids and you will be dropping beats, looping, and mixing like pros within minutes.
