Marcus Hobbs is a software developer focused on both creating software tools and using them to create visual and musical art. His first career was at Walt Disney Feature Animation whereas a digital artist he developed software used to create 3D artwork for Lion King, Pocahontas, Hercules, Atlantis, and Mickey’s Philharmagic, and Meet the Robinsons. He is currently developing mobile application software synthesizers that support microtonality, particularly focused on implementing the works of musical scale designer Erv Wilson. His iPhone and iPad application “Wilsonic” implements many of Wilson’s scale designs with interactive parameters so that musicians and composers can customize these designs to suit their values. He is a developer of “AudioKit Synth One”, a free open source additive software synthesizer which can import scales designed in Wilsonic.
