I do this using FingerplayMIDI on my Android-Phone connected to Alsa 
Modular Synth in Linux. It takes some basic knowledge and time to 
configure the matrix of FPMIDI to provoke something usefull in AMS but 
once it works it is absolutely hypnotic fun that poses a serious thread 
on bedtime ;-)

DIN is noise offers a drawpad-interface builtin.
