“Soundwalks / Parcours sonores” offers a parallel audio reality in real time that responds to the listener’s movements through the city. This interactive composition of forms and sounds works in harmony with the listener’s surroundings and the structure of each site. This project reimagines the city, enriching it with a creative, audible, sensory experience—a city that thrives on mobile satellite technology!
The sounds that make up the composition and soundscapes are linked to geographic coordinates and are generated in any of the following three ways:
- triggered: the reading of a sound is simply set off by a geographical coordinate;
- zoned: the sound is read in a loop in a given perimeter around a geographical coordinate.
The APP require persistent location because sounds are triggered depending on the location of iPhone.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
