C E N T R A L P A R K (Listen to the Light)

The second in our series of location-aware albums, entitled 'Listen to the Light' and designed for Central Park in New York City, will be released on October 4th in the App Store.  

Full press release after the jump...

 "Washington DC-based duo Bluebrain's latest release is not a traditional album -- it can't be listened to passively in one sitting or, for that matter, at just any location. 'Central Park' is a site-specific work of music that responds to the listeners location within the stretch of green of the same name in New York City. Available only as an iPhone and iPad app, the album will be released starting October 4th, 2011. 

'Central Park' is the second in a series of site-specific app-albums, following 'The National Mall', released last May, designed to work within the boundaries of the park in Washington DC

Both albums work by tracking a users location via the iPhones built-in GPS capabilities. Hundreds of zones within the landscape are tagged and alter the sound based on where the listener is located in proximity to them. Zones overlap and interact in dynamic ways that, while far from random, will yield a unique experience with each listen. The proprietary design that is the engine behind the app stays hidden from view as the melodies, rhythms, instrumentation and pace of the music vary based on the listeners’ chosen path. Unlike other music-related apps, these are not musical toys or instruments. Nor are they a compliment to a traditional album release. The app is the work itself. A musical 'Chose-Your-Own-Adventure' that does not progress in a linear fashion but rather allows the listener to explore the terrain and experience music in way that has never been possible before now. Chris Richards wrote in a Washington Post cover story, "Bluebrain ('The National Mall') is helping to redefine what an album actually can's truly magical". 


  1. Apple is taking a chance. Rather than allowing carriers like at&t/Cingular to control the mobile experience, Apple is controlling the experience through iTunes. Financial analysts on Wall Street are waiting to see whether this strategy will work. Security is an are that can prove Apple right if they respond to security threats better than the carriers. mobile phone

  3. I still don't understand why companies develop serious apps for iPod??? It is a toy. Yes, I understand it for iPad, it's more or less a functional toy. But we should use things for their direct purposes in order to get a good result

  4. Do you want to get many facebook fans fast? Well, lucky you. You can easily do it. Unlike before when you had to wait for several months and even years before you could garner a good number of followers, things have now completely changed; you can now get thousands of fans within a few hours. All you need to do is to find a reputable site selling the followers and place your order. Once your order has been processed, your account will be drowning in facebook fans in no time. When buying the fans, you should ensure that you buy them from reputable sites that will not run away with your money.
