Wander Bristol’s cobbled streets and eavesdrop on the memories of its citizens. The Audience is a new experience by Matt Fenlon Creative that allows you to listen to people’s stories about what Bristol music means to them, and discover new things, people and places.
Today I want to talk about the exciting new app that I’ve been working on for months and finally published: The Audience!
In my latest app that I’ve designed as part of the new Bristol Music: Seven Decades of Sound exhibition at the M Shed, you can now explore the streets of Bristol listening to user-generated stories about Bristol Music. To listen to the stories, you have to walk to the physical location displayed on the map, and once you get there the story is triggered automatically by GPS. The result is an immersive experience where you can be stood listening to someone’s story in the very spot that their memory was originally created.
I’d like to take the opportunity to thank the M Shed for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this amazing exhibition, as well as thanking Rod Dickinson who’s given me an unbelievable amount of technical support and helped in seeing through this project to the end.
