ROCKETSHIP puts users at helm of a spaceship on an intergalactic ride and allows them to control the energy of the music by manipulating the speed of the vessel.
ROCKETSHIP is a song about taking a risk and diving into the great expanse, both lyrically and technically. It experiments with a new way of presenting and producing music using the interactive audio and visual affordances of the browser. By recording each layer of the same song at multiple "energy" levels and using the new Web Audio API to smoothly interpolate between them, users are able to fly at their own speed and create a unique and custom version of the song with each listen.
