Listen to the Light a Locative Music concept album - 2012



This is perhaps the first locative music album created for a walk in Central Park, NYC. I tested the locative album and it is really a nice immersive experience.

“Location-aware music is Ryan and Hays Holladay’s exploration of music that is composed and mapped to a landscape and that can only be experienced within the designated coordinates of a physical space. Designed for Apple’s iPhone and iPad, location-aware music discards the passive listening experience and invites the user to explore a terrain musically as they move throughout a space. Musical passages and pockets of sound are spread across a terrain — geo-tagged to various landmarks, paths and spaces that blend seamlessly as the listener traverses the area.” (
