Gliss is an application for iOS that lets the user sequence five separate instruments and play them back in various ways. Sequences can be created by drawing onto the screen while the sequencer is running. The playhead of the sequencer can be set to randomly deviate from the drawings or can be controlled via the accelerometer of the device. This makes Gliss a hybrid of a sequencer, an instrument and a generative music system.
