Our children's music app Monster Chorus seems to be really striking a chord with Apple: back in June, Monster Chorus received a headline feature in the China App Store, and this week it has been featured again as the iPhone App of the Week!
The Monster Chorus promo video is now online (also available on Vimeo)!
The video was recorded at Juan Claudio's home and stars his lovely wife and daughter. We rented some camera and lighting equipment from the nice folks at Vison Rouge Shanghai and did the recording in an afternoon. Fluxa was the photographer, Anna directed and did the editing, and while Juan Claudio and I provided moral support (i.e. ate pizza).
Here are a few behind the scenes photos:
For the new update for our kids’ app Monster Chorus, Lillian had to create an illustration of the farm in the song “Old McDonald”.
This was the first version that we did of the facial hair of the farmer. As here in China one doesn’t meet men with striking mustaches on an every day basis, we did a little research.
We found the differences between classical Hungarian, Greek, Middle Eastern, Austrian mustaches, as well as the stock-photo version of old-man-with-mustache, and a few unique cuts and styles.
Which of the mustaches do you like best?

Earlier this year we released an iPad app specifically for young children called Monster Chorus. In Monster Chorus, you can tap on eight lovable little monsters on the moon which each sing a different musical note.
We've received some great feedback from kids and parents on the app, and are happy to announce version 1.1 which was approved today by Apple.
This update includes some great new features:
Songbook and spotlight playback
Songbook and spotlight playback is a great new feature that allows users to play popular children's song. When a song is selected, a spotlight appears over one of the monster's indicating which note needs to be played next. It's a cute and simple way to introduce children to
We've included four popular children's songs that users can select: Mary Had a Little Lamb, Baa Baa Black Sheep, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and Three Blind Mice.
Record your voice
To add to the fun, the new record feature allows you to record your own voice and have the monsters sing it back at the appropriate pitch.
