Walking piece details

Explore Queensland’s rainforests, rivers and reefs through interactive soundscapes and acoustic ecology in Airlie Beach.

Launching at the 2017 Queensland Music Festival, Aurality is an augmented reality audio project exploring Queensland’s idyllic rainforests, rivers and reefs through music, sound and acoustic ecology. The app uses GPS points along the coast of Queensland, Australia to trigger audio based on location and movement.

Walk towards the sounds (circles and images) on the map and they will play automatically when you are in the active zone. You can explore the sounds in any order at any time of day. The soundscapes will adapt and evolve throughout the festival.

AURALITY is best experienced wearing headphones.
