For some time now I have been seeking art-focussed GPS-triggered apps for smartphones and am particularly enamoured by SATSYMPH:
“SATSYMPH LLP is composer and visual artist Marc Yeats; poet, writer and context-aware media director and producer, Ralph Hoyte; and coder, composer and audio engineer Phill Phelps.”
The trio create ‘context-aware soundworlds’ i.e.
“…high quality contemporary soundscape experiences…triggered by GPS...”
Their elegant and adaptable creation has massive potential and what I particularly like about it is that downloaded content functions completely independently of the availability of a phone signal, rendering it especially useful in rural regions.
Full details can be found on the website, facebook and twitter:
