GPS-TRIGGERED IMMERSIVE SOUNDWORLDS
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. We compose ‘context-aware soundworlds’ – located high quality contemporary soundscape experiences for the smartphone outside in the real world triggered by GPS (satellite) signals.
These ‘immersive soundworlds’ (or you can think of them as ‘virtual auditoria’) are invested with contemporary music content, contemporary music/word fusions, poetry, heritage interpretive content, or with any desired audio content. We have ‘in-house’ capacity, know-how and experience in all of these areas. We work (mainly) in AUDIO as our experience over the years has shown audio to be the more compelling medium; and as peering at a small screen in the great outdoors is both difficult and distracts from the actual reason you came to the great outdoors.
The audience access this ‘immersive soundworld’ by downloading an app containing all the content and instructions needed to run it onto their personal iPhone or Google Android phone. Once downloaded you go to the designated location, don headphones and navigate the virtual world with your ears whilst remaining in the real world with your feet. No, you don’t need a phone signal – the soundscape is satellite-triggered. This ‘virtual soundworld’ can be any shape or size, can be disseminated or composed so that the audience members converge in certain areas, or are ‘funneled’ in certain directions.
