JAM with Chrome is a fun playable online music experience that demonstrates the latest and greatest Web audio capabilities of Chrome. One inside the site visitors can select from a range of stylish instruments and connect with up to three of your friends for real-time jam sessions.
“Google is always looking for new, fun ways to connect to their audience, which is what makes them great partners for a project like this,” explained Tool Interactive Director Ben Tricklebank. “It really speaks to the power of great collaboration, with Tool combining our interactive expertise with Google’s creative powers and Dinahmoe’s audio expertise. We were really thrilled to help them take an exciting concept and use the power of Chrome to create something really special.”
Google Creative Lab architected the concept, allowing their creative direction to pull the disparate elements to come together, while Tool provided the creative execution, including the design, user experience, animation, and front-end dev.
In summation, accordingly to Tool EP-Digital, Dustin Callif, “What better way to promote the audio capabilities inside the Chrome browser than to allow people to play music and jam?”
