U-GRUVE AR: Interactive Soundtracks for Public Spaces
U-GRUVE is a location-based app that lets you experience original soundscapes written by professional composers specifically for a given location, be it a park, plaza, or promenade. But to fully hear each piece, you must walk around the space, and effectively discover the music.
The selected locations, all of which are well-known public spaces, have been split into virtual zones, each of which has been assigned a sound or musical passage. By walking from zone to zone, you can effectively construct your own musical arrangement to accompany you on your visit.
Version 1.0 launched in New York City in conjunction with Creative Tech Week, and features original works by Michael Durek, Milica Paranosic, Jesse Stiles, Barbara J. Weber, Norville Parchment, Richard Rodkin, and Mick Sussman.
New pieces are continually being added, without requiring additional updates or downloads.
