They were setting up an application for the iPhone, Ipad to get a new experience for the walking trough the park. 400 different music track were placed in 264 different zones and with the help of the GPS system in a smartphone for creating a new sound structure while you enjoy a descent walk in central park.

It’s sort of exploring a site you might already know but now you are able see it from a new perspective, a different view. A new soundtrack for our stay at the park. This new project gives the landscape a new identity because you could discover other layers which might not appear for you in the first moment. It gives you also the first time the chance to perceive a landscape with an individual music album. Maybe it is a chance to explore places like Central Park in New York in a new way to enhance more connection to it.
