Personalise your writing by choosing between six unique moods. Each mood changes speed, filter and colour to each letter’s musical note. Easily import text written in other writing applications with a copy and paste interface. When you’ve finished writing, share it with a click of a button! Whether it’s a message, essay, story, or poem explore a new way of writing. Make music while you write.

Jono Brandel studied Design Media & Arts at UCLA before receiving artist grants at cheLA and Fabrica.

Now a member of Within, his work has been showcased at the Tate Modern, Siggraph, FITC, the Japan Media Arts Festival and in The New Yorker and Wired Magazine. He has also worked with musicians Kimbra, Plaid and the Arcade Fire among others. Jono uses graphic design and computer programming to explore procedural aesthetics.

Lullatone is a Japanese musical duo whose music is characterised by an innocent, childlike quality and spare, lo-fi sounds. Although the group refer to their music as “pajama-pop”, it is commonly included in such musical subgenres as electronic and indie pop. Their influences are diverse, including bossa nova, 1960’s French pop, children’s songs and musique concrète.
