SATSYMPH

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:

I ♥ E-Poetry…

I ♥ E-Poetry is largely an educational project, developing into a reference of electronic literature that aims for encyclopedic scope of its coverage.

It is designed for newcomers to these genres, scholars who need a quick reference, and educators interested in teaching e-lit in their courses. “

 

The project has a blog, from which came the above quote, and also a facebook page.

 

It is a fabulous, expanding, resource.
