A Roundware experiment @ M&W
Hello All…thanks for checking out this collective audio experiment.
Scapes was originally built and composed for the deCordova Museum and was on exhibit for 6 months last year. The context there was a peaceful sculpture park outside of Boston, so bringing it into a downtown area for a bunch of museum professionals to try out is a significant leap from its original intent, but I’m excited to see how it goes. Hence, this is an experiment; not a finished, polished, and fully-tested situation, but hopefully interesting nonetheless.
Participating should be fairly self-explanatory once you get the ‘Scapes’ app going on your phone. Unfortunately, it is only available for iPhone currently; we are hard at work on an Android version, but it’s not quite ready. There is a web client as well, though obviously some of the geographic functionality needs to be handled differently in that situation.
So go ahead, wander about, listen, leave your mark on the streets and let’s see how things evolve over these four days. Feel free to use the installation itself to share your thoughts, ideas and feedback with everyone!
