Holderness Media has introduced Waviary 1.0 for Mac OS X 10.6.4 or later. It costs US$1.99 and is available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store in the Music category.

Waviary is an interactive musical artwork that’s part instrument, part generative ambient music machine, and part virtual wind chimes. You use simple controls to create ambient soundscapes and textured atmospheres. The generative player can run while you play, as well, allowing for a randomized ambient jam session.

Pitch control and octave up/down controls allow for sound manipulation, creating varied textures and ambiences. Waviary is a tool especially for sound designers looking to create unique effects and environments for film and games.
