Øystein Kristoffersen Hansen is a partner in a small music technology company called Höylytt and has been in touch to tell us about Jamsy. This is what he has to say...
Our wish as a company is to play a role in getting as many as possible to find joy in making and playing music themselves. That's why we have created a new, patented technology (Guided Workflow™) which accelerate the sense of achievement and hopefully helps light a spark in both children and adults. Playing an instrument has so many positive effects on both our cognitive development and our health, so if we can help anyone find the musician within that would be awesome.
We are ready with our first product based on this technology; the music making app Jamsy, which is now available for free in the Apple App Store. Jamsy lets you compose your own tunes by putting together your favourite chords in a super simple and intuitive way. Then you get visual guidance while improvising (jamming) on a keyboard on top of your tune. This is a fun and intuitive way to learn your way around a piano. It is great for beginners, but also for musicians who would like a way to work on song ideas on-the-go.
