AUDIOMOBILE is a project for mapping cities with sound. AUDIOMOBILE inhabites the Artist Run Limousine (ARL) which is owned and operated by the Artist Run Limousine Collective. AUDIOMOBILE invites exploration of "sonic maps" by physically riding in a multi passenger vehicle which is equipped with surround-sound and GPS (Global Positioning System) technology.
Individual audio elements are triggered by matching the output coordinates of the onboard GPS with the geographical location of the vehicle in the city as it glides through various urban scenarios. As a result, an array of audio samples, sound clips collaged with looping ambiences and complete narratives, generate an everchanging audio "city scape" projected into the vehicle. The position of the vehicle determines which sounds are being played and from which direction (loudspeaker) they originate.
Last year was Critical Conversations in a Limo video is now available on Google.
