Location aware music
April 5, 2011 § 1 Comment
Music based on your geographical location? Well, yes.
DC-based duo Bluebrain creates site-specific music that responds to the listeners location within the stretch of park in downtown Washington DC, known as the Mall. The National Mall is truly the first location-aware album in the sense that it is a work of authored music-different melodies, different rhythms, different instrumentation, and different songs entirely to be heard at their designated location. Since everybody explores a landscape in a completely different way and at a different pace, the sequencing and arrangement of the music will be unique for each listener. Or at least, that is what they promise.
The National Mall will be released in the following weeks in the form of an iPhone app.
