Funk Parade: Boombox

Illustration, UI & UX Design, Project Management

In collaboration with the DC Funk Parade and Alex Braden, a local DC composer, we created an app that allows for a collaborative musical experience. What makes this app special is the syncing process. We had the challenge of working without the internet because of high-volume low-wif-access at the event and had to figure out a way to make the music sync every time.

Our solution was to access the mobile devices internal clock and sync the music every second at a play point within that time. So if you push play at 1:22:23 it will start on the 23rd second of the music. No need to countdown and press or connect to bluetooth. The Syncing happens automatically.
