This app is part of an artwork called Sound Communities which is being installed in a grand old sandstone bus shelter on Enmore Rd in Enmore Park, Sydney, Australia as part of the Perfect Match Festival, August 2017.
In the bus shelter itself, there will be a touch sensitive copper tape drawing mounted on a large sheet of acrylic plastic. When a visitor arrives at the site and opens the app, the app will pair with a bluetooth circuit attached to the drawing. When the visitor then touches the drawing, they will hear binaurally recorded sounds and stories of communities and community spaces and initiatives in Sydney's Inner West.
For those who are unable to access the work in the bus shelter, there is a tappable version of the artwork in the app itself.
* Background play enabled for sounds in the app
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
