Mobile apps have become an integral part of our everyday lives. They help us get our jobs done, stay in touch with people we care about, and even do our shopping. But, as useful as apps are, there is also fierce competition in the app marketplace. The Apps are just another form of Artistic design and talent in digital form, as the look and feel matters the most!
In our Art showcase, we feature one of the best mobile app –
LetzRock – An Emoji music player.The App’s theme has a modern design with mood based Emojis, that helps us to categorize the songs using ‘one-touch’. It can be used for a variety of activities such as Driving, partying, workout, and much more. With LetzRock in our phones, we don’t need to skip the songs anymore while engaged in activities such as Driving, workout, etc.
The fully updated 2017 theme integrates beautifully with colorful themes, so you can choose which one you’d prefer to listen. It comes with all the needed features, which have been updated for 2017, such as:
Multiple custom remix
Add your own remix
10 different color themes
Most importantly, the App serves a great purpose of not having skip the songs. The Emoji icons helps to play the songs by mood.
LetzRock is a product of LetzwApp Communications, Inc.

When people think of Vancouver, most think of mountains, trees, ocean and, high priced real estate! If you aren’t from here, you probably won’t hear much about the huge pool of talent that lies within our city bounds unless you are a savvy collector or art buff. One of the amazing thing that we get to do each year is feature amazing artists, designers and musicians. Among some in this year’s show include Nancy Perreault, an eclectic and wild designer who is humbly making waves in the city and beyond. Guests can expect a range of designs that range from ready to wear to a glamorous party to wild, one a kind pieces perfect for glass cases on walls. Another highlight each year is the emtertainment. Among some of the great performers, Art World features some 20-30 performers each year including musicians, dancers, jugglers, hula hoppers, actors and of course musicians. Some of the artists performing this year include Gayle Arnold’s two person band The Strangest Days, as well as Kara Lockwood Music. In the past, we’ve highlighted local musicians including first time performers like Mat Walach to veteran rockers Bif Naked and Doug Fury. We pride ourselves in sharing local talent in all stages of their careers. Another highlight of the show is our auction. Not only do the proceeds help support arts based initiatives such as arts programs for kids and adults, funds are also used to produce art exhibitions and support artists in the event. Guests can expect to bid on everything from hotel packages and BC activities and adventures to art from artists in our show and beyond! This year, we are giving away two tickets each week when you repost this image and hashtag #artworldexpo! Body paint by Jess Hawkins. Line up! Gary Weston 2014. Glamour Noir theme this year. Consider purchasing a mask this year by Coastal Storm Gallery. $20/ea or included in a VIP ticket.
Guests can bid on amazing items and services in the auction.
Composer Kenn McSperitt is working on an ambitious musical art project that involves basing orchestral songs on human speech. This pioneering new method, which he has deemed ‘phonetic composition’, means that pieces can be created that mimic the way that people talk. McSperitt melds phonetic science, phonological features, and spectral analysis of speech sounds to produce this truly unique experimental sound. This is art at its most unique and inventive.
McSperitt is currently attempting to finance a CD containing 2 large multi-movement works in the style of phonetic composition. He is using the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter in order to do this. The album will be distributed by Centaur Records, a label in the Naxos distribution family, which has already agreed to help to get it on the shelves. It will feature 50-60 minutes of new music for chamber orchestra.
This is a truly original project, involving one of the most creative musical-art concepts of the last decade. Perhaps it could herald an era in which the lines between speech and music are no longer as defined, and rousing speeches can be translated into compositions that are equally stirring and memorable. It seeks to question the very nature of music, and blur boundaries that were previously set in stone.
