Location-aware Music Project - Central Park NY
Ryan Holladay and his brother Hays created the location-based musical experience “Listen to the Light” in Central Park, in which users pursued musical and physical routes during a walk through the park.
Location-aware music is Ryan and Hays Holladay’s exploration of music that is composed and mapped to a landscape and that can only be experienced within the designated coordinates of a physical space. Designed for Apple’s iPhone and iPad, location-aware music discards the passive listening experience and invites the user to explore a terrain musically as they move throughout a space. Musical passages and pockets of sound are spread across a terrain — geo-tagged to various landmarks, paths and spaces that blend seamlessly as the listener traverses the area.
