A musical adventure inspired by true events!! Sort of…
When a world famous cellist forgets his instrument in the trunk of a cab, mayhem ensues. The blues trio the Hound Dogs plot to “borrow” the cello for a performance at the renowned Cool Note Cafe. Cabby Cat and the cellist, Mo-Mo Ya, with the help of the NYPD, must find the cello in time for the big concert that night at Carnegie Hall.
Created by two New York dads, Douglas Harsch and Timothy Brewer, Cabby Cat is an immersive musical Picture Book App set in New York City. The sophisticated interface allows 3D zooming and rotation on many pages, character interaction and gaming elements, while offering the experience of leafing through a traditional children’s storybook. Music plays a central role in Cabby Cat & the Missing Cello, providing a virtual movie soundtrack.
