What We Do
Satsymph have an exciting and revolutionary approach to what ‘music’, ‘poetry’ and ‘heritage’ are and can be. We create located, spatialised and interactive soundworlds in the areas of contemporary music, contemporary music/word fusions, poetry, and reimagined heritage interpretation. These experiences are delivered as an app containing all the audio material to your smartphone. Your phone’s functions (gps, accelerometer etc) trigger the experience. Download the app, go to the location, put your headphones on and enter a parallel universe of sound! These sound experiences are:
Located: the parallel soundworld is layered over a real-world, physical location: discover the soundpools in chosen real-world locations!
Spatialised: the audio comes at you from any direction – it is genuinely 3D.
Interactive: what you experience depends on how you move through the soundscape (eg. how fast, how slow, and by your bodily orientation)
Satsymph was founded in 2011 by classical contemporary composer and visual artist Marc Yeats, soundartist, poet and writer Ralph Hoyte and coder, audio engineer and musician Phill Phelps.
“It’s as if the landscape is talking to you!” (User comment on ‘the RomLitScape’).
As solo artists in our own right we also have individual websites. Please see ‘The Satsymph Team’ above for links.
