Location Based Music? It’s Awesome and In Washington, DC

Posted by on May 31, 2011

I don’t normally pay any attention to this kind of stuff, but this is just too cool not to share. A Washington, DC, local band has created an album that’s entirely location based entitled The National Mall. Say whaa?…Yeah exactly. It’s an album that was composed on the National Mall and you can only hear it if you’re there in person. While you walk around, the music changes. Ladies and Gentlemen, the future is here. Next up, an album that plays smooth jazz when it detects there’s an attractive lady near by.

If, like some of us at NNAR, you do live in the area, go grab the app, and hit up the Mall. Also check out the band behind the magic, Bluebrain (@bluebrain). They’re apparently wrapping up work on their next location aware album, based in Flushing Meadows in Queens, NY.
