Booktrack – “The Time Machine” Released
Booktrack is releasing the book “The Time Machine” today. The Booktrack Contest has been one of the most unique ones Indaba Music has ever run. It lead to 13 members who helped Booktrack score audio for the classic story, “The Time Machine”. The entire book is comprised of 1 or more of the submissions from those 13 winners.
Booktrack is the newest way to enjoy your favorite novels and short stories on mobile devices including iPad, iPhone, PC and Mac and Android Tablets. eBooks published by Booktrack include a customized, hand-created, movie-style soundtrack that matches the action in the text.
As users read the text, the music, sound effects, and ambient audio change to reflect what’s happening in the plot and are automatically paced to each individual’s reading speed to match the action of the story as they read. The result is a wholly immersive experience that pulls readers into the world of the book. In order to read “The Time Machine”, you would have to download the app.
We’re excited that 13 of our members were chosen to contribute their creative outlet to such an innovative project.
