Booktrack has released a new Salman Rushdie short story as an eBook app, complete with a soundtrack played by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. In February, the app costs 99-cents–follow this link to download the smartphone and tablet app.
Founder Brooke Geahan explained in the release: “Creating music for stories is reminiscent of the Golden Age of Hollywood, when the moving picture incorporated with musical scores heralded a new form of entertainment: movies … we are proud to showcase Booktrack’s affinity for exceptional literature and music, and our ability to conjure a new experience for a new era.”
Booktrack creates eBooks with a synchronized soundtrack, adding music, sound effects and ambient sound to the reading experience. On the Morning Media Menu last year, we interviewed Geahan about the new project.
